Indeed, with all of us using it happy and content.

My use of fetchmail and procmail differs from Matthias' only in the
omission of spamassassin, and having procmail deliver to about ten
inboxes, one for each list, one for family, and the default. Mutt then
presents them in the priority order I have selected, so that I first see what
I need to see, without having to wade through two thousand mails in one
nightmare jungle after a fortnight out on the farm. (I am at a loss to
comprehend how it is possible to deal with one chaotic dump, especially
without having a heart attack or failing to respond to important mail,
lost in the flood.)

Instead of spamassassin, I've made do with a bunch of procmail recipes,
which only let about one spam per week through. Another recipe weeds a
high traffic list, dumping stuff that won't interest me.
