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 Deliver fetchmail messages to two different MDA's
Obviously, you could do the same thing with Maildrop as well. I'm not familiar enough with Maildrop to actually post a solution.

comment Move spam from dovecot public folders
The top Google hit is wiki2.dovecot.org/SharedMailboxes/Public -- did you read that? Is your configuration similar? How are you invoking Procmail for the public folders? You will need to add more details in order for this question to be answerable.

comment No SOA record — what are the implications?
+1 Mystery solved, thanks! It was partly shrouded by the fact that host simply replied has no SOA record for this domain, which is sort of understandable, I guess, but clearly wrong (I see now).

comment No SOA record — what are the implications?
Thanks for the pointer. Yes, it returns what I expect (nothing for the domain itself, just an SOA for the co.uk TLD).

comment No SOA record — what are the implications?
Thanks. I would still appreciate a bit more detail -- what are the mechanics, which are the parts of the SOA which affect caching? (I assume the caching servers would fall back to fairly conservative TTL values if none are specified, for example?)

comment check with procmail if a file exists and set a option
? means examine exit code and ! inverts the truth value. test -f is true when the file exists, but we want truth (successful condition) when it doesn't.

comment DROPPRIVS=yes & procmail: Program failure (75) of “/usr/lib/dovecot/deliver”
I tried to edit this to add the [dovecot] tag but I don't have sufficient privileges and the edit dialog says I need to change the post more. Somebody with adequate privs, please edit?

comment DROPPRIVS=yes & procmail: Program failure (75) of “/usr/lib/dovecot/deliver”
It simply indicates that dovecot returned an error (non-zero) exit status. So the question is really, what is Dovecot trying to tell you? wiki2.dovecot.org/Tools/DovecotLDA says that exit code 75 is a standard "temporary failure" but nothing more. Do you get anything in the Dovecot logs?

comment procmail is ignoring user settings
You can set DEFAULT to a Maildir mailbox name. The format of the file name determines the delivery format. A plain file is mbox, a directory with a trailing slash is Maildir. This will not update the Dovecot indices, though. (There is also dir/. for the legacy MH format.) See also wiki.debian.org/MaildirConfiguration

Hmph, looks like you basically already solved this in serverfault.com/a/579348/98333
