http://www.courier-mta.org/maildrop/maildrop.html says

    maildrop knows how to deliver mail to an standard mailbox files;  it
    also knows how to deliver to maildirs.  A maildir is a
    directory-based mail format used by the Courier and Qmail mail

A `maildir' isn't what nmh uses so you're left with a mailbox, but that
has a `From ' line before the headers, so again that's not nmh.


Perhaps maildrop can be told to use something else to do the storage, so
its filtering can still be used first?

Cheers, Ralph.
