Exactly.  I didnt have an imap server install before I installed TradeServer.  
However, now that I installed Tradeserver, I have an imap server also (yes,
their setup).  I did change the smtp server to sendmail (they provide exim.  I
know sendmail better, though).	I also setup sendmail to use imap as the MDA. 
I use the Sanitizer at work (we were the only ones not effected by melissa,
et.al) and I swear by it.  I am hoping I can get it to work with my
Sendmail/Imap setup.  

according to the web page I sent earlier, I have to modify my sendmail.cf as

Mcyrus, P=/usr/bin/procmail, F=lsDFMnPqA5@, S=10, R=20/40, T=X-Unix,
	A=procmail -p $PROCMAIL.CONF CYUSER=$u

Where $PROCMAIL.CONF would be the path to the procmailrc file supplied by the

The setup listed at the above (or below) mentioned url have a 'common' system
wide procmailrc file that defines 

I believe that their procmailrc would replace the one used by Sanitizer.
Then they have individual procmail files for each user that define the actions
to take (which would be equivilant to the procmailrc supplied by Sanitizer).  

I think I am going to be ok with making a copy of the Sannitizer procmailrc
file for each user and that should take care of it.  Is there an easier way, or
am I stuck like this?
