See 'man procmailrc' -- I've found the meta-expressions ^TO and ^FROM most
useful. They expand to a variety of header pieces, and work quite well. I
have these which must date back to another millenium alltogether as they
still refer to U Texas :)  They are also overly complicated because of the
old addresses, but heck, it works so why fiddle with it ...

Hugo, do invest the hour or so in reading up on procmail. It has good
examples in a specific manual page procmailex.


The relationship between the computed price and reality is as yet unknown.
