I'd say you're using mbox (all messages in a single file) format whereas
exmh wants mh folder format (each folder is a directory, messages are in
individual files named 1, 2 etc).

You have to set up mh maildir (usually ~/Mail) and folder(s) in there
(default is inbox: ~/Mail/inbox), and tell procmail to deliver there, eg.
* ^TO<filter-expr>.*
| /usr/lib/mh/rcvstore +inbox

see procmail manpages and docs for details.
