I have had trying outlook rearrange my inbox (imap) so... I don't want to get started on this topic :-)

My current problem is this:

$ procmail VERBOSE=yes .procmailrc < testmail
procmail: [3936] Wed Feb 12 00:39:58 2003
procmail: Suspicious rcfile "/home/asimha/.procmailrc"
procmail: Couldn't read "/home/asimha/.procmailrc"
procmail: Locking "/var/spool/mail/asimha.lock"
procmail: Assigning "LASTFOLDER=/var/spool/mail/asimha"
procmail: Opening "/var/spool/mail/asimha"
procmail: Acquiring kernel-lock
procmail: [3936] Wed Feb 12 00:39:59 2003
procmail: Unlocking "/var/spool/mail/asimha.lock"

 Subject: test for procmail
  Folder: /var/spool/mail/asimha
