Thanks for the reply. I like procmail as my local mail delivery.
Sorry for the path; it's an old habit. On my linux debian box procmail
is in /usr/bin; the rule came out of an old linux sendmail.ms file ;-)
It can't harm to give the correct path (/usr/local/bin/procmail) in the
sendmail.mc file, so I'll keep it in.

Things run smoothly already..

Yeah, I've heard. I'm not quit sure about the correct syntax of the
.forward file.
