I finally got procmail working. I gave up on trying to run it on the schools
computer, so I download it w/ fetchmail and run it locally.
After procmail sorts through my mail and delivers it to different mailboxes
(in the MBOX format), KMail 1.1.99 does not flag them as unread messages.
Has anyone run into the same problem, w/ Kmail or anything else? I'm willing
to switch mail readers if it's going to be a problem to correct it w/ Kmail.
I would expect a mailreader that keeps track of the read messages, rather
than the unread, would handle this better. I believe Eudoramail works this
way, but it's Windows-ware.
I know with mutt there's a way to specifically flag messages of interest, but
that won't do. I wan't everything new to be colorcoded and counted.
I've been reading THE PROCMAIL COMPANION by Martin McCarthy, which is well
written and concise. I recommend it to all beginners, and I also expect it
to be a good reference once I'm experienced. However, I can't find anything
on this notification issue in the book, and the archives don't quite address
