I may have found a solution here. It is possible to direct the email
back through procmail again, using the -m  option to use the 
private rc file;

* ^To.*david at
|/usr/local/bin/procmail -m /usr/david/.procmailrc

the man page states;

     -m   Turns procmail into a general purpose mail filter.

seems to work.
