Acutally I believe MDA is "Mail Delivery Agent". It's typically used to refer
to the process that takes care of writing your email to your mailbox (i.e.
/var/spool/mail/$user or $HOME/Maildir/). Often the MDA is procmail but many
MTAs have built in MDAs so the use of procmail isn't essential (though it is
still useful). maildrop is another popular MDA.
