I have a very similar setup. I put the mail from a few sources, and a
bunch comes a local SMTP server. I use maildrop instead of procmail, but
the concept is identical.

Anyway, I filter the mail into a series of Maildirs (I'm in a NFS
environment). Then I use an IMAP daemon that groks Maildirs and sees
them as folders. Voila, my Apple Mail client, my Squirrelmail web mail
app, and mutt are all in sync.


Blot out sense and sound:
 what do you have?
