I've read an article in the Linux Magazine 01/2002. They describe a
way with formail:
:0 Wh: $PROCMAILDIR/msgid.lock
|formail -D 32768 $PROCMAILDIR/msgid.cache
but this didn't work for me for some reason.
Because it's wrong. Sometimes it really makes sense to read the man pages
(hint: man procmailex(5)). And if you do so, use the other recipe for
duplicate elimination, the (corrected form of the) one above can cause
irretrievable mail loss. I have requested on procmail-dev that this example
be removed from the man page, but there was no reaction at all.
