I've had this in my .mh_profile almost since I started using nmh:

  postproc: /usr/libexec/nmh/spost

I must have had some reason for it once, but I can't recall what that
would have been now. If I don't have this, I presume post will be used
instead. It's not clear to me from the post man page what post will
actually do with the mail it's given. Will post simply do the same thing
that spost does these days?
