Rob and Scott,

Thanks for the responses. I tried Rob's stuff and it seemed to work. I 
did restart Sendmail (MS) after adding the symlink to procmail in 
/etc/smrsh, so I don't know if that had anything to do with it working 
or not, but it works great. I may add the checking as I've already 
forgot the parm once.
