mailstat.pl example program using Log::Procmail to mimic mailstat(1)

Customise to your heart's content, this program is only provided as a guideline.
This program was written by Philippe 'BooK' Bruhat as an example of use for Log::Procmail. It mimics mailstat(1) as much as possible.
The original mailstat(1) was created by S.R. van den Berg, The Netherlands.
The original manual page was written by Santiago Vila <firstname.lastname@example.org> for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used by others).
