Oh, I think I see.  If the "folder" doesn't exist, and the path
doesn't have a trailing slash, then procmail creates a new mbox
folder.  However, I think but haven't tested, if the "folder" is an
existing directory and the path lacks the trailing slash you'll have
an MH folder.  In that case just use 'mv' to stick all the message
files in the 'new/' directory in the folder's directory.  (mutt can
also read MH folders, but maybe not if the folder also looks like
maildir)

HTH,
