procmail is a mail processing and SmartList mailing list suites. Procmail can be used to create mail-servers, mailing lists, sort your incoming mail into separate folders/files (real convenient when subscribing to one or more mailing lists or for prioritising your mail), preprocess your mail, start any programs upon mail arrival (e.g. to generate different chimes on your workstation for different types of mail) or selectively forward certain incoming mail automatically to someone.

What's New in This Release:
Regression bugs from 3.20:
Broke compilation with K&R compilers
procmail -p -m was overridding PATH
maildir delivery included garbage in filenames
Mismatched HOST in last rcfile didn't discard the message
COMSAT wasn't turned off by an rcfile on the command line
Catch overly long command line variable assignments
If a command expansion is truncated, set PROCMAIL_OVERFLOW and don't trim trailing (really middle) newlines
If the comsat host can't be resolved, set COMSAT to "no"
