I'd rather use an IMAP server on the central server : imap is made for keeping the mailboxes centrally and consulting them remotely. Thus your mail stays on the servers, but you can treat it from your laptop as well. I have a similar setting, with courier imap, and procmail delivering to the underlying maildir. But when I find time I'll investigate maildrop as mail delivery agent with filtering capabilities. -- Erwan _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
