Hi Marcel, What mail server are you using with MySQL? I use a tool called vexim (http://www.freshports.org/mail/vexim/) that integrates Exim with MySQL and also supports virtual mailboxes. However, I can use procmail with any of the mailboxes, too. If you post more details about your setup, someone here might be able to figure out a solution so you can use procmail.
