If you're using "fetchmail" or some other third party tool to retrieve mail
from _another system_ using POP and drop it into your local mailspool, that
should still "redeliver" it locally through the MTA, which should in turn
invoke the LDA and handle .forward as appropriate. However, you will be
downloading *ALL* the messages, *THEN* filtering them, unless you put
procmail on the remote host and filter your mail on its way into the
mailbox there BEFORE you use fetchail to retrieve it down to the local
Hmmm..... Sorry Sean, let me clarify. (I was a little confused by some
of your terminology so am still not sure.)
My mail is handled by a remoter server that I have no way to
put/implement Procmail on.
It is a POP3 account.
I use Sendmail on my home box to send.
I do not have fetchmail or anything else like that set up yet so the
'grabbing' of mail from the remote server is handled by Mutt.
The question is, will a .procmailrc (don't have to use a .forward) be a
waste of time with the above setup and if so what could I do? Also. if a
'pop-grabber' is required, which one?
Thanks again for all your procmail help Sean, It's very much
