Not an expert but I am just starting to think about moving from mbox to
mdir on my home server, so Id be interested in how you get on.
man procmail says
If no rcfiles and no -p have been specified on the command line,
mail will, prior to reading $HOME/.procmailrc, interpret
/usr/local/etc/procmailrc (if present). Care must be taken when
ing /usr/local/etc/procmailrc, because, if circumstances
will be executed with root privileges (contrary to the
mailrc file of course).
So you may need to set the default location here.
