          Viktor, I hope you realize that you have not answered the question.
          To be more specific: why does postfix, in a local Unix/Linux
          environment, have any dependence on procmail? There is no
          mention of this in any postfix documentation that I saw. Nor
          is there mention of procmail in master.cf or main.cf. I also
          hear, for the first time, of a "logical" mailbox. Is this
          concept documented?

           Again, I regard this as being evasive. The fact is: procmail is
           necessary for postfix to work. My question is: why?

           I hope that when it does it will be documented fully, and that
           a user unaware of such a thing will not suddenly and unwarnedly
           discover that for a simple postfix configuration to work (s)he
           will have to install libellipcurve4.3.1 and read the
           documentation on it.

    Best wishes,

    Alan
