One of the things I do with Procmail is look for certain key phrases in 
email to a particular special account and if found, send an email that 
includes the line containing that key phrase to my cell phone text message 
address. It's easy to do with Procmail and formail (which is part of the 
Procmail suite); I haven't a clue how to do that (if it's even possible) 
in Sieve.

I think those who advocate getting rid of Procmail in favor of Sieve are 
those whose interest is in sorting mail into folders. Those of us who 
advocate using Procmail are those who use Procmail for other purposes.
