I became aware of this after looking through synaptic to see if I could
find any similar programs to procmail... Though, I've never installed
any programs like this myself as I have little to no use for them at the
current time.

I didn't even think about plugins, but I scanned through them real quick
and didn't see much of interest that would have created this folder.  I
also double-checked my filters and didn't find anything out of the

either way, the folder seemed to stay gone after I was able to delete it
through evolution. maybe it was just one of those random
floating-pointer type errors... If it comes back though, I'll certainly
make a bigger fuss about it.

Thanks for your help!
