comment Who are these BSD Unix contributors?
I guess dmst.aueb.gr/dds/pubs/conf/2015-MSR-Unix-History/html/… is where this ended up?

comment Procmail not running
I don't see anything in there which would deliver any message locally, and thus nothing which would trigger Procmail. I don't think this setup has any sane chance to integrate your .forward file and still remain true to its goals. See also mail-archive.com/isync-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/…

comment Procmail not running
Not familiar with lsync and googling doesn't turn up anything useful. Is that what's supposed to somehow deliver your email to Procmail? Perhaps you should describe that part of your set-up in more detail.

So did you try the things at iki.fi/era/mail/procmail-debug.html#startup? What's the result?

comment Procmail not running
It's not obvious to me that the .forward error or using zsh would break things completely for you, but I see nothing else here. Adding some diagnostics from your procmail.log would certainly be a useful addition to your question if this doesn't help.

comment What is a socket?
Quick googling turns up page 40 in The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System; the text mentions this change in 4.2BSD but also clarifies that this is no longer how it's done, for performance reasons.

Maybe also mention that pipes predate sockets, but once the socket interface was added to Unix, it made a lot of sense to reimplement pipes using local sockets.

comment What is a socket?
The point being, this answer is incomplete in that it only covers one type of socket, and misleading in that it represent sockets in general as if they were always network sockets, and specifically IP (AF_INET) sockets.
