There is probably an anecdote from the Bell Labs from the early 1970s which either solves your problem or improves your understanding of it.

comment postfix/procmail - preventing duplicate email in procmailrc
That's just a workaround. The real solution is to handle transport in transport. See porkmail.org/era/procmail/mini-faq.html#virtdom

comment Procmail: Inject sender address into the message body
If you want the sender's email terminus and nothing else (i.e. just parsley@graceland.example.net pro Elvis (the King) Parsley <parsley@graceland.example.net>), remember also the slightly tricky formail -rtzxTo: which generates a reply message's headers, then extracts the To: address from them. (The -t option creates a preference for e.g. the Reply-To: address which may or may not be what you want. Both -r and -rt are decidedly more complex than just extracting the value of From:.)

comment How do I deal with a compromised server?
Given the choice between an anonymous Python script and a documented, (somewhat) supported, well-understood standard solution, you are hoping they will pick the former?

comment Need linux milter solution to log email body into database
No, but it will have To: set up to reply back to your system; that's the whole point of this set-up. Have the email delivered to the database, then maybe run a trigger of some sort to have the system process it.

That's not how you do it. You'd run the script on whichever box is already processing your email. Send the email (with the proper Bcc: or similar to make sure it reaches the correct inbox) and the script will run.

Incidentally, by commenting here, you will reach approximately two readers (me and the OP); a new question will reach a significantly larger number of eyeballs.

comment Perform an exact match on the email address in From: header using procmail
@user227963 It's not actually hard at all, unless you have unchecked assumptions. Commin such assumptions are that the regex ^From: will somehow magically also match some other common sender headers, or that the email regex will somehow match an address in a different format which actually doesn't match the regex you used. But post a new question with the details of your problem and we can take a closer look.

Obviously, you could do the same thing with Maildrop as well. I'm not familiar enough with Maildrop to actually post a solution.
