Thanks for this excellent suggestion. I didn't realize you could do this.
It works really well and is elegant.
If I wanted to establish a global procmail filter that would be applied
to all incoming messages (like adding a lines field or scanning attachments)
is there an equally easy way to do this (short of creating filter files for
all users and sourcing a global procmailrc file)?
