There aren't any howto's that I know of.  By default, exim will use
procmail as the MDA if a ~/.procmailrc exists.  So, if you set up your
~/.procmailrc to deliver to a maildir, your mail will end up in a
maildir.  Exim can deliver to a maildir natively as well, though that
would require modifications to /etc/exim/exim.conf .
