What you really want to do is filter into an mbox and have Evolution
import it. *Or*, you could tell evolution to use these filtered mbox
files as "spool"'s and use them that way.
The reason you can't just dump mail into Evolution's folders is because
it keeps a summary of them and if you append to the mbox without
updating the summary files, then they get out of sync. Not to mention
Evolution uses file locking, I'm not sure whether or not procmail does?
