I'm trying to write a procmail filter that moves incoming mails that match to a subfolder of the inbox, but I cannot get it to work and the mails disappear into a black hole. The filter works just fine if pointed to a subfolder of root, but not when pointing to a subfolder of Inbox.

:0:
* ^To:.user@domain.com
.Inbox/MyFolder/

I have tried different variations, like '.INBOX/MyFolder' and just '.MyFolder', but it doesn't work. Have anyone got this to work?

You need to use a period instead of a slash after Inbox for the rule

* ^To:.user@domain.com
.INBOX.MyFolder/
