You don't have to use procmail. You can instead pipe diorectly to a
script which invokes MHonArc (or pipe directly to MHonArc itself via
plus-addressing). I specifically don't do that as I want a filed
separate canonical copy of every message and I want to run MHonArc
under controlled/predictable conditions (with large archives it can
be resource intensive).
Procmail is useful since it has robust locking capabilities, but
you could roll your own pre-processor.
Richard, you may want to check out a message I wrote a long time
ago archived at
It should provide you with a good start.
