Using Procmail with Postfix


I'm running a postfix mailserver on RHEL ES 3. I want postfix to use procmail for system wide mail delivery. I'm using fetchmail to fetch the mails.In /etc/postfix/, I've given the entry,

mailbox_command = /usr/bin/procmail

But still , Postfix doesn't seem to use procmail for mail delivery.Is there anything else that I should do to achieve the result.

Your helps are highly appreciated

Did you reload postfix (postfix reload)?
Did you configure a systemwide procmail file (/etc/procmailrc) or per-user files ($HOME/.procmailrc)?
