With 2.99.48p6 / 2.99.49p2 the standard configuration will
ALMOAST do it all. You need to alter MAILSHARE/scheduler.conf
# Do MIME text/plain; Quoted-Printable -> text/plain; 8BIT
# conversion on flight!
# Or with CYRUS server the following might do:
#command="sm -8c $channel cyrus"
# Or with PROCMAIL as the local delivery agent:
#command="sm -8c $channel procm"
Comment the first "command=" entry away, and uncomment the last one.
Then all deliveries to local users will go thru procmail, AND
if users want to run pipes / store to files thru their .forward
files, they can do that too. (That is why there are tag-matchers
for "local/file*" and "local/pipe*" before "local/*" in that
scheduler.conf file; those are for cases which must not run thru
