You are right.  You have the "From" line added by the delivery agent
that includes delivery date and what appears to be the envelope sender,
so it is not the "From:" value of the message itself.

Possibly, and likely the only convenient way if you want such
information associated with the destination folder listed in the log.
You can likely achieve a similar affect with recipies, but it would
complicate your procmailrc.

Looks like there is a users' list for procmail, that still gets some
light traffic:


Might want to ping it to see what others think.
