Help with procmail mailing list

I need to find out for sure whether or not Solaris 10x86 comes with procmail installed? I only need it for mail subscription "Only"
WE have about 51 mailing lists subscriptions from listproc.
I need help just doing mailing lists.
How to best go about this?
I downloaded version for Solaris 10x86
We are running a listproc "old" version on Solaris 9 sparc, according to my app person she tells me that I can just transfer it over is this true?
I thought it was OS dependent.
We need the ability to do the auto-sub doesn't require anything fancy... just needs to allow
1) email-based subscriptions from a manager account
2) ability to track current and former subscribers of a list.
The latter was the one that was completely do-able in listproc but required a bit of a turn around the barn. I suspect it'll be easy in any newer application.
Any help would be appreciated

NAME
pycmail - mail sorter SYNOPSIS
pycmail [-d debuglevel] [-t] [-c conffile] [file1 file2 file3 ...] DESCRIPTION
pycmail is a mail sorter similar to procmail, written in python, using python syntax for mail delivery. OPTIONS
file1 file2 ... read mails from file1 file2 ... instead of from stdin (useful for mail postprocessing) -d level, --debuglevel level set debuglevel to level. -t testing mode. No mail delivery will be done. Use in conjuction with -d -c conffile, --config=conffile use file conffile as a user configuration file (instead of ~/.pycmailrc ) -D define add define to the DEFINES list (this can be tested later in the .pycmailrc to modify the behaviour). Can be repeated several times to add more strings. USAGE
pycmail should be invoked automatically from the .forward file when mail arrives. Default debuglevel is 0, which means pycmail tries to deliver mail in almost foolproof way: if there is any error in ~/.pycmailrc file, mail will be delivered to the default mailbox (such as /var/spool/mail/USERNAME ). If the debuglevel is 1, any error in ~/.pycmailrc file will be printed, resulting in bounced mail (but pycmail will still try to deliver the mail to default mailbox). Higher debuglevels will print more information about the actual mail processing. The bigger the debuglevel, the more detailed information is printed. To test your configuration, do something like this: formail -s pycmail -d 2 -t < your_test_mailbox_file SEE ALSO
