   Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Does right-click on a mail folder / Properties solve your issue? Set the
New Store Format to "maildir" and that folder gets converted.

Once you have set one folder to the maildir format, have a look at the
directory structure and the contents in the ~/evolution/local/
hierarchy. To create new maildir folders bypassing Evolution, see the
XML files, especially the type value of the folder section in

You probably even can make the mbox/ directories symlinks and therefore
pointing to other directories.



Hi guenther,
   Finally I got a chance to use your suggestion.   I was not aware of
this procedure, but once I did this, it still did not work until I
clicked on another folder, and then clicked on Inbox again.  The
messages seemed to appear, but they ended up to be deleted messages
sorted out by procmail.   I'm not sure what happened here.
  I set the folder to /home/robert/Maildir/, but maybe what I should
have done is set it to the exact folder, which is
"/home/robert/Maildir/new" using the three folders automatically set up
by Procmail.  
  The other problem encountered was although I selected "Apply filters
to Inbox", it did not do this with any of the emails.  I don't know why.
It works correctly when I select standard POP mail delivery.
Maybe you have some advice or suggestions?
