Re: [PLUG] Trouble w/ procmail

Isn't the .forward file handled by the mta prior to handing it off to
the procmail filter?  Thus when the mta sees the .forward file it just
forwards the mail the the listed recipiant@wherever.com.  Then the mail
filtering is handled at the final host.

I Think I have right?
