Hey Gary,

I gave that a try. 
echo ./Maildir/ >> /var/qmail/control/defaultdelivery
When I run:
gotmail --use-procmail --procmail-bin `which procmail` -u b1henning -p

It delivers in the mbox instead of the Maildir.
I tried you recipie changes you sugested and the .procmailrc changes.

Any other thoughts,

Thanks for the help,

Yes, you need to tell qmail what type of mailbox system you have. It
not deliver to Maildir if you do not have it..

I am assuming you have a stock setup of qmail with a /var/qmail/control
in place..

just make a defaultdelivery file in the control dir, and put in
into it, to have a Maildir format..
