Here is what I just created and it seems to work.
------------------ snip ----------------------------------------
# .procmailrc
# routes incoming mail to appropriate mailboxes
# see man procmailrc and man procmailex
MAILDIR=$HOME/mail   # all mailboxes are in mail/

# debian-user mail
:0:             # last colon means a lock file
* ^Resent-From:.*debian-user
debian-user     # put them in this folder

# debian-security mail (includes debian-security-announce)
* ^Resent-From:.*debian-security

# portfolio reports in monthly gziped files
# later I will figure out how to get rid of unnecessary headers except
# date
* ^Subject: Portfolio Report
| gzip >> portfolio`date +%y-%m`.gz

# abiword-user mail
* ^(To:|CC:|Sender:).*abiword-user
---------------- snip --------------------------------------
I hope that helps.
