Ingo did not create a .procmailrc, procmail creates an empty one by 
default in $HOME if there isn't one, when it is run.

My issue is simply that in backends.php for Ingo, there is no example 
of a simple vfs/file backend, I'd much rather use than than ftp, which 
I did kludge into working yesterday.

I would much rather not have to run an ftp daemon whos only job is to 
move files around the local filesystem, but I don't know the semantics 
that ingo's backend.php wants.

Thanks Jan.
