For my purpose I want to somehow get the nntp data that my newsclient

Probably need some more direct way of getting nntp data to procmail
but don't really understand how that would be done.

Couldn't use an NNTP Perl module to suck posts from an NNTP server
and pipe the data to procmail?

It isn't clear to me if procmail is capable of handling a raw nntp
message without somekind of conversion to one or another mail format.

NNTP messages follow the same syntactical rules of mail messages
(RFC 822).
