I think you meant "locking" instead of "indexing."

I use procmail locking to keep multiple copies of rcvstore from stepping
on each other and rely on rcvstore to keep from stepping on invocations
of MH from the command line. For example:

  :0 w: mh-e$LOCKEXT
  * ^From mh-e-(announce|devel|users)address@hidden
  | bwrcvstore -create +lists/mh-e

If it isn't "perfect", it's good enough. I haven't noticed any mail
getting clobbered in the nearly 20 years I've been using this.

I've attached the bwrcvstore script.
