First, the default is ~/Mail (note the caps).  You can change this

set folder ="~/mail" # the default location of mailboxes

When you hit 'c' you'll be taken to a listing of the files/directories
in '~/mail'.  If you hit <Tab> then you'll be taken to a listing of
all folders marked as incoming mailboxes.  I file all list mail into
folders in ~/Mail/lists so this works great for my config :

mailboxes "!"
mailboxes "=1Inbox" "=2Default" "=system" "=debian_BTS"
mailboxes "=lists/1announcements"
mailboxes `echo $HOME/Mail/lists/[a-z]*`
