Okay, so the Desktop Environment Guide mentions the fact that Gentoo by default tends to use ~/.maildir for mail, instead of /var/spool/mail/username like any self-respecting UNIX should. :P I'm using sendmail, and I can't for the life of me figure out why it keeps on dumping mail into ~/.maildir. Does anyone know how to get sendmail to stick mail in /var/spool/mail/username? Or perhaps it's a procmail thing; I hadn't thought of that. But after looking around just now I'm not sure where I'd specify that in procmail, either.

A note on configuration: I'm using the same configuration that's worked for me on two other boxes (both Debian, though). I've got my sendmail.mc file which is exactly how I want it, and I've generated the sendmail.cf from there. My .procmailrc is identical on both systems.

Ah, figured it out. The ebuild patches procmail depending on some USE flags. Specifying "mbox -maildir" will fix things up the way I want.
