[clug] sorting /var/mail/$USERNAME ?

Hi there,

Is there a way to sort a /var/mail/$USERNAME spool file automatically
into separate files when there is no local mail server running?  The
/var/mail stuff comes from a NFS-mounted partition and fills the spool
file "magically".  With no mail server running locally, I can't use a
.forward file in combination with procmail, of course.

I'm thinking about a cron job now, or something similar.  Any

Thanks in advance,
