OK, this filter would only be for me, not for any number of users on the
system so I'm not really worried about the loading, my mailbox isn't a
high-traffic affair! Could you point me in the right direction for each of
these solutions? I am only a user on the Cyrus installation, I don't have
any proper access to it, I do have a .procmailrc file and support have
told me the path to my mailbox.

Many thanks,
