Saving in MAILDIR format with Sendmail

I presently have Sendmail as my MTA. The mail in /var/mail is in MBOX 
format. I wanted to change it to MAILDIR format.

1) Is it possible for Sendmail to save in MAILBOX format directly?

2) If not, can ProcMail be used in this scenario? If so, how would I 
configure it? I Googled and noticed something about ending directory 
paths in '/' but I did not really understand what it was referring to.

3) If someone has a better solution, I would love to hear it.
