Probably the easiest way would be to setup fetchmail on your workstation
to grab all the email off the remote server. Fetchmail pipes the mail
through the smtp server on your workstation, and you could use procmail
You could instead try to ftp a .forward file up to your homedir on the
remote server, which would contain something like:
However, depending on how the remote server's admin might've configured
things, you may not be able to include a pipe to an external program in
the .forward file. You may not even be able to put .forward file on the
remote server for that matter.
