Try fetchmail's `-m' option. For example:
fetchmail -a myserver -m "$HOME/bin/my.processing.script"
Where $HOME/bin/my.processing.script is just:
formail -Y -I Status: -s procmail
It works for me.
BTW: There will be a completely GPLed procmail in hamm soon. Could we make
it the "standard MDA" as well? :-) [ Red-Hat *already* does this ]
