Several reasons:

1) I dislike procmail

2) Fetchmail doesn't recommend procmail

3) All of my AV and Anti-Spam controls are set up in Postfix

4) Nearly all of the users on my system are 'virtual'. I was told that
procmail either doesn't work or doesn't work reliably with 'virtual'

5) I already have Dovecot installed. I have no reason for another LDA.

6) Not all of the mail for this system is delivered via Fetchmail.
