No. Virtual domains. Sendmail. X-Envelope-To.
I think procmail only runs commands using $SHELL when it find shell
metas in the command line. Otherwise it just forks and execs the
command itself. The syntax of .procmailrc has so far deterred me from
attempting to read the source to find out for sure. Any mind that can
dream up something like that probably does horrible things to C ;-)
