Good review of /etc/procmailrc, Sean. One thing I question, though:
'man procmail' details several commandline options which will affect

I don't believe the -f- or -f stops /etc/procmailrc. I'm
too coffee-depleted to think about testing it now, though.
On my system (NetBSD), having a .forward that calls procmail does
not stop /etc/procmailrc or the LDA.
