procmail mail forwarding problem

I am having a problem with procmail.  What I am trying to do is take a received email and forward it to another email address masking the both addresses with their corresponding username@mydomain.com email address.  So if a user foo@yahoo.com sends a message to bar@mydomain.com, bar@mydomain receives an email from foo@mydomain.com at their bar@yahoo.com address.  Does this make sense?  I'm basically trying to route emails through my server masking the real addresses.  The forwarding works, but the message body is not delievered.  The content length is returned as 0.  Why does this happen?

Thanks in advance


here is my code--

:0c fhw
* ^From:.*$sortemail[$i]
| /usr/bin/formail -I "From:$sortuser[$i]\@mydomain.com"
:0 fhw
* ^To:.*$sortuser[$i]\@mydomain.com
| /usr/bin/formail -I  "To:$sortemail[$i]"
