In this context, I was wondering if anyone could help me with a several
years-long issue. I have fetchmail and procmail set up just fine, and they are
working, but here is the problem.

When I get my mail and procmail it, I make a logfile. However, the log-file
does not have the sender's name in it but rather my name (because I fetched it
from my pop server). This is not much use to me, and would really help if I
could find a way to get procmail to provide me with the sender's name.

Many thanks,
