Hmmmm.... I guess that I haven't yet sat down and learned about ProcMail --

Regarding this: suppose that I don't want to have to create a new

can have MHonArc choose different archives based on some header

to one "archive" user, but then filter based on the "to" field...

What I do:

  Inbound mail to be archived goes to an archiver account.

  Procmail files that mail in per-list folders.

  A cronjob runs periodically and calls list-customised MHonArc RC's
  to archive each list.  (Its actually a little more generic than
  that as I use a standard RC which includes a small per-list custom
  template which defines things like list owner email address etc).

The template bit:
