Actually, this is quite a popular topic on the FreeBSD lists. A few moments searching a http://freebsd.rambler.ru/ will get you such handy messages as: http://freebsd.rambler.ru/bsdmail/freebsd-questions_2003/msg11082.html or http://freebsd.rambler.ru/bsdmail/freebsd-isp_2001/msg01947.html or http://freebsd.rambler.ru/bsdmail/freebsd-chat_2002/msg01762.html But note that Cyrus deliver has a built in 'sieve' function which will do a lot of what procmail does, and it has a remote interface which is handy when you want to set up a mail server box without giving login accounts to all of your mail users.
