Surely it would take far less time to give your actual setup
than it would to explain (at length) how easy it is to set it up ...
Here is my server directory setup:
~/Maildir/[cur,new,tmp], ~/Maildir/.Family/[cur,new,tmp], etc.
My dovecot.conf sets
mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir/
My .procmailrc sets
I cannot see the Family folder from my IMAPS client.
Also it complains of the lack of .INBOX.directory
("Could Not Determine Resource Status").
