Dear Maintainer,

At least this version of DMA doesn't seem to provide any way to use a 
dedicated Mail Delivery Agent (like maildrop or procmail) for local 
delivery.

Thanks,
Andrei

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
DMA does not pipe mails to other processing stages. This has been a
deliberate choice so far, because to do so, dma would have to execute
these MTAs with the credentials of the receiving user. This would
require more root permissions, which is something I am very careful
with. I think if somebody wants to use procmail, they already crossed
the complexity threshold for dma.
