I can send email to the indigo address via UKLinux manually and everything
seems normal. Its only the procmail forwarded addresses that don't work. We
are also trying another procmail recipe here to forward another users mail to
an eircom address... the same problem... the mail gets sent out and then
vanishes. UKLinux is delivering other mail normally.

It uses the envelope recipient, which is not in the headers of
the message itself, it's the RCPT TO line in the SMTP conversation.

In this case your smtp client told smtp.uklinux.net to deliver the
message to kphilp at gofree.indigo.ie.
If it doesn't make it through to indigo, then it isn't being
relayed by smtp.uklinux.net, for any number of reasons.
Can you normally send through this server to that indigo account?
Do you get bounces?
