    You'd need to tell us how the gateway running Anomy is configured for

    If server A forwards mail to B, then the forwarded message will not get
    processed by any procmail filters installed on A.

    If server A forwards mail to B, then the forward message /might/ get
    processed by procmail or sendmail filters on B, depending on the
