    I wasn't thinking of using procmail for cyrus - I'll take your word for
    it, and it makes sense to me :-)

    No, I don't think it would work unless the imap server is designed with
    procmail in mind; same as with postfix: it can handle local delivery, or
    give it to procmail, kind of improved local delivery agent.
