Re: [vox-tech] procmail question

I think it would be better to write your rule like this:

    :0 c
    * !^From.*MAILER-DAEMON
    * !^From.*nobody@spamcop.net
    * !^From.*vox.*-admin
    * !^Subject.*BOUNCE vox

Each rule is AND'd together, so a message will only go into your backup
folder if each rule is true.  You don't want to OR the conditions
together because then the only messages you are excluding from your
backup folder are the ones that fail all the tests.
