linux default iconmaildirproc Publisher's description

maildirproc is a program that processes one or several existing mail boxes in the maildir format.

maildirproc is a program that processes one or several existing mail boxes in the maildir format. It is primarily focused on mail sorting — i.e., moving, copying, forwarding and deleting mail according to a set of rules. It can be seen as an alternative to procmail, but instead of being a delivery agent (which wants to be part of the delivery chain), maildirproc only processes already delivered mail. And that's a feature, not a bug.

So, what's good about using maildirproc instead of a more conventional setup, with a delivery agent like procmail? For me (the author) it's this:
* It's small. maildirproc is just a small Python program that is easy to understand.
* It's robust. If there's a syntax error in the configuration, or a bug that makes the program crash, then nothing happens; the mail will not disappear. And as a consequence of using maildirs, no locks are needed.
* The configuration language is relatively easy to understand and use, yet very powerful. The rules are expressed in a full-blown computer language (Python).
* It's easy to test new configuration. Since maildirproc is not part of the delivery chain, it's just a matter of taking down or disabling the process, modifying the configuration and running maildirproc in test mode. When the new configuration is ready, just start or enable the process again.
