    I have a standard (I suppose) web server that I rent from 1and1.co.uk. They install Plesk 7.5.3 and qmail.

    Currently, I'm letting qmail deliver mail into /var/qmail/mailnames/dave.org.uk/dave/Maildir and then every few minutes I run fetchmail which pulls the email into maildir files in ~dave. The reason I do this is because I want to run procmail to filter the mail into different directories.

    I then log into the server and read my email using mutt.

    But now I'm thinking that I should get qmail to deliver the mail to procmail so that procmail can filter the email into various mailboxes under /var/qmail/mailnames/dave.org.uk/dave. I'll then be able to access my filtered email using anything that supports IMAP.

    Has anyone tried this before? How did you get it to work?

    Any advice or recommendations are appreciated.
