In case you run Linux, and want to filter using procmail, do this:

create a ~/.procmailrc file containing roughly the following entries:

MAILDIR=$HOME/Mail #you'd better make sure it exists LOGFILE=$MAILDIR/from #recommended

* ^From.*

* ^Subject:.*aardvark

now, create a .forward file containing the following line: "|exec /usr/bin/procmail"

Perhaps you ought practice that on a fake user, lest you lose some mail by fooling around with regexpen.
