    Subject: [anomy-list]: Procmail for dummies

    I am currently running a Postfix Server that acts as a gateway and as a
    local mail host for several domains. I have been experimenting with Anomy
    and SpamAssassin and I wish to be able to set different filter settings for
    each domain. I also do not wish to filter outgoing mail. (I currently use a
    script (not procmail) that filters all mail that arrive at the server.)

    I have been reading up on Procmail and it appears that it can only be used
    to direct mail locally. I found a "To" function that that could be used to
    redirect mail, but I also read that this set up is flaky at best.

    What have other people done? Where can I find a "How To" For the procmail
