readme or tutorial for multiple users

2001-08-16 03:25:57

I'm looking for a readme or tutorial to do the following with Procmail:

I want to give customers their own Pobox on my domain. The location of the
Pobox for Procmail's purpose is /usr/boxes/{my
account}/{pobox name} I can set this up via my provider.

I then want to filter and deliver their messages to their own Pobox, using
their own custom .procmailrc configuration file.

This is where I'm lost. I currently use my personal .procmailrc file to
filter/deliver all messages, which works fine providing my criteria and
theirs are the same. What I'm after is how to set up a custom .procmailrc
file for each customer and still keep mine for my own use.

Our server has converted to qmail recently and since then, all poboxes are
filtered through .procmailrc before being delivered (Which is perfect, I
think). Prior to qmail the poboxes where totally separate and did not pass
through .procmailrc.

My .forward file:
"|IFS=' ' && exec /usr/local/bin/procmail -f- || exit 75 #my account"

Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.
