You can kinda use procmail with kmail.  Kmail store all its mail in
I think you can use procmail to put mail in those folders. Never tried,
and I probably wouldn't do it (kmail seems to create some index files,
and I don't know how they will work if the index files and the actual
mails in the folder don't match).

Unfortunately, kmail won't allow you to point your maildir directory
anywhere (it insist on moving all the mail into its directory structure).
