I think you're right.  I wonder how fetchmail and procmail are being
made to work together.

A simple `procmail /dev/null <scrumpy.mbox' here, where the mbox has
three emails, has it append one email to the normal mail-spool file that
has a `From ' at the start.  The others that marked the start of
subsequent emails have become `>From '.

Cheers, Ralph.
