[vox-tech] Maildrop

I just switched my procmail recipies to use maildrop instead. I actually think I prefer maildrop because the language is more flexible, because it's more of a sequential language (I also get to use a logical-or operator to combine pattern matches, something procmail apparently couldn't do easily).

For example, I was able to add one line of code in each of two places to make my spam and viruses get marked read and filtered to another folder, while procmail required an additional rule to correspond to each of 6 rules.

I thought I'd give you all the heads up if you're looking for the features it provides. Here's my .mailfilter for those who want to see.
