Question funky courier / procmail issue


i'm new to procmail / email in general. i've set up a suse 9 server with postfix as the MTA ( default ) and courier-pop3 running to deliver email

mail spools are at $HOME/Maildir instead of /var/spool/mail/$USER

I can filter mail with procmail rules a la

HOME=/home/username
SHELL=/bin/sh
MAILDIR=$HOME/mbox
VERBOSE=on
LOGFILE=$HOME/.procmaillog
DEFAULT=$HOME/Maildir

:0
* ^Subject:.*(**SPAM)
spam

:0:
$DEFAULT

# end code

when .forward isn't there (ie no procmail) I can receive mail via mutt just fine ( mutt is using $HOME/Maildir as the mail spool ) but if i use .forward / procmail, any messages that don't match my one filter are stored in ~/Maildir/ as files a la

user@box:~> ls Maildir/
cur msg.-HL msg.MIL msg.RIL new tmp

mutt doesn't see these messages and neither does courier =/

.procmaillog ( w/verbose on ) looks like this:

procmail: Assigning "DEFAULT=/home/user/Maildir"
procmail: No match on "* ^Subject:.*(**SPAM)"
procmail: Assigning "LASTFOLDER=/home/user/Maildir/msg.SIL"
procmail: Opening "/home/user/Maildir/msg.SIL"
procmail: Acquiring kernel-lock
From me@there.com Wed Mar 24 17:29:10 2004
Subject: foo == bar
Folder: /home/user/Maildir/msg.SIL 6450
procmail: Notified comsat: "user@0:/home/user/Maildir/msg.SIL"

any ideas?

TIA, jeff
