I've been trying to get in touch with the c.o.l.a. moderator (I'm pretty 
sure that's who it was) to get permission to add a modified version of 
his procmail filter to /usr/doc/procmail/examples.  It includes things 
like blacklist, whitelist, vacation, newsgroup filters, etc.  However, I 
haven't had a response so I may just send it to the procmail maintainer 
to see what he/she thinks.

There's a debian package for this, try looking through the packages file 
for digest.  I know I've seen it before.
