~2 years later, the index link (and it's parent directory, and every sibling directory beneath 'unix') is dead. Time to turn that smile upside-down! :(

You can still get it from some other mirrors, like ftp://ftp.ucsb.edu/pub/mirrors/procmail/. But still, the first mirror in the list, and the primary download site, are down.

It's unfortunate. Like a lot of other people, I rely utterly on procmail, and nothing else can replace it (mostly 'cos nothing else seems to be able to run random Unix programs and feed them messages, or run Unix programs to decide where messages should go). procmail is horrible, but it's the only mailfilter that really has any of the Unix Way about it... and now it's gone the way of cron, with the distros' independent maintenance its only hope.

Mailfilter can, and its syntax is definitely less… convoluted. (I switched to dovecot's sieve implementation, though, because I'm not doing much post-processing of my emails lately.)

Hrm. Interesting, but assuming I have the right tool it looks a bit POP-specific. I'm really looking for a local delivery agent that my MTA can invoke, just like it does procmail.
