Your sysadmin is a ninny.

Happily, however, the source for procmail is available

  And, of course, Procmail is not required for simple archives.  I am 
running a number of archives on FLORA and do not have Procmail 
installed.  I can understand not wanting to install Procmail unless it's 
needed - it's a great tool, but not necessary in this case as you can just 
use Sendmail's (similar for all other mailer's) "|program" in the 

We do use the same process but as we received about 600 mails a days we
had some time access conflict  computer overload when many messages arrive
in the same second. So we have create a spool, the perl wrapper just write
incomming mail to the spool and a daemon read the spool periodicaly
and pass each mail to mhonarc.
