I thought first that this was procmail fault... but it is not. Putting 
UMASK=022 in procmail result in spool file with mode:

but still the file created with mhonarc are rw-------

I tried to insert a umask 022; at the beginning of mhonarc ($VERSION =
"2.1.0";) but it does not work either...

It would probably help to supply your procmail recipe.  I have little
experience with procmail, but other users on the list do have

Note, the latest version of MHonArc is 2.3.3.

Have done a test of mhonarc from the command-line to see how the umask
setting behaves?
