I feed any mail received by popclient to procmail using the
following crontab entry:

    14 05 * * * popclient -3 <my.mail.server> -c | formail +1 -ds procmail

formail splits the stream of mail coming from popclient into single messages
and executes procmail for each message.

Hope this will help,
