comment Postfix, procmailrc, SpamAssassin letting some but not all spam messages through
The user comment is a placeholder which should be replaced with your actual account name; but unless you are running an antique Sendmail, this part of the .forward is completely unnecessary. In fact, most Postfix default configurations don't require any .forward at all, and will run Procmail if a .procmailrc file is detected.

Please update the question with a Procmail log excerpt. Obtaining one is probably also sufficient for yourself to diagnose the actual problem.

Unless there is a piece missing from your .procmailrc there is nothing which sets $FROM and so the whitelisting check will never succeed.

comment Emails corrupt and a winmail.dat file attachment added for only one mail box
Procmail by itself does nothing of the sort, but if the mailbox has a .procmailrc, that could do pretty much anything, possibly without leaving any trace in the log.

comment Should websites live in /var/ or /usr/ according to recommended usage?
@ceejayoz If you have more than about two categories of "stuff" it's much simpler to tell them "we follow the FHS", even though that might require some additional details for some categories of "stuff".

comment Is a reboot required to refresh permissions after adding a user to a new group?
Actually, turns out that the real problem was that I was reusing an SSH master session. Disconnecting that by removing the ControlPath socket and logging in again resolved the problem.

comment Bash evaluation baffling
Your cat | sed | awk abomination seems to only pick out the decimal part of the load average and using it as an integer. The diagnostics you show are not consistent with this. Are you sure this is the code you are actually running?

comment Load users environment variables in a cronjob
Oh, if the Bash start-up files contain Bash-only syntax, that won't work either -- you'll get export: command not found instead. Better really to put these in a Bash script and call that from Cron. Updated answer.

You forgot to fix the source: command not found error. Sorry about not mentioning it in my very initial answer.
