My reply was to the following comment from Xavier:

"Fetchmail is used to retrieve my mails. It then passes them to
procmail which stores them into my mail spool."

It's possible I misunderstood what was meant by "mail spool", but I
read it to mean the maildrop, in which case Xavier would be using
the maildrop as a temporary space after procmail but before

I was wanting to imply that using procmail to store into folders directly
or via rcvstore is a better idea, because then you *can* sort into
different folders.
