Might as well mention my latest toy (as in program I'm playing with, not
a program I've written) maildrop.

Back in the late nineties or so, procmail couldn't handle the maildir
format, while maildrop could.

Depending upon the complexity of your procmail filters, maildrop's
syntax can be as, or more simple than, procmail's.   

If anyone is interested in playing with it, I made my own little
quickstart guide which can be viewed at
