 +[14] WHERE IS PROCMAIL LOCATED ON THIS SYSTEM?
  
 +     The procmail executable is located on the mailserver. ​ You will not
 +     be able to access it via an NFS client and it should only be called
 +     from your .forward file similarly to this:
 +
 +     "​|IFS='​ '&&​exec /​usr/​libexec/​procmail -f-||exit 75 #​$LOGNAME"​
 +
 +     For best performance and less of a burden on shared resources it
 +     is asked that you only do mail processing in /tmp or in $MAILDIR.
 +
 +     Do not process mail in your home directory. ​ Calling procmail from
 +     or performing mail processing on an NFS mount can sometimes result ​
 +     in data loss.
