1. [...] Will procmail be able to truthfully interpret those words
in that specific language "as-is" or would procmail interpret them as
ASCII character equivalents/junk characters if the host where procmail
is running does not understand that language (Japan, china, etc.) ?
Procmail will almost certainly interpret them byte-by-byte as ascii
equivalents no matter what the capabilities of the host where it is
running. Procmail is a very old piece of software and incorporates NO
localization or multi-byte language support whatsoever.
2. How do I approach this requirement to implement language-specific
I'd start by looking for external programs that can be called from
procmail. One place to look might be the language recognition module
that's included with SpamAssassin.
