There will probably be a log for this somewhere of what is going on. I
don't think you said what OS or any of that. Regardless, you will
probably do better Googling for information about the use of the
Procmail RC file (nothing much to do with Xymon). I don't remember
having any particular trouble with this. You'd need to know whether
your MTA even uses procmail though, I think. I personally used a
.forward file that is at least used by Sendmail (which is what I'm
using -- don't recall whether it supports procmail which is for mail
