Is it possible to get procmail running using this method?

I got Pine installed and configured with little trouble but haven't been
able to get procmail to run (ie. actually filter incoming mail).

I would like to use Procmail also but I don't think there's a way to
make it work with Getmail. Procmail is a "Sendmail sort of thing"
that hinges on an invisible ".forward" file to make it process.

If you want to set up Sendmail that's another story ...

Pine now has a "Rules" feature that allows you to do filtering. You can't use your existing procmail settings, but I bet its a lot easier to set Pine rules than to get procmail running...
