Hi Jeff,

I too have someone else host my email for me, and for the same reasons
you do.

What I don't understand about your question is, Why can't you have
procmail and an Ipod touch?

        # spam filter rules

        # list mail

        # Forward the rest to my Ipod Touch, but keep a copy too
        :0 c

As for your other question: no matter how great Google Mail or
Thunderbird get, I will never give up procmail. For me, changing rules
is less of a time-consuming burden and more recreational joy.
