Procmail – a versatile e-mail processor and can be used to create mail-servers, mailing lists, sort your incoming mail into separate folders/files (very 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.

Procmail was originally designed and developed by Stephen R. van den Berg. In the fall of 1998, recognizing that he didn’t have the time to maintain procmail on his own, Stephen created a mailing list for discussion of future development and deputized Philip A. Guenther as a maintainer.
