procmail + maildir + mailbox with spaces


I'm using procmail to filter my mail into maildir mailboxes (I'm using courier mail). I know that by default it sends mail to /var/mail/spool/ and I can use procmail to send them to my inbox using


at the end of my .procmailrc file.

However, I can't seem to get the right syntax to send mail into any of my other mail folders or subfolders. Can anyone show me some examples on how to do this? I also have some mailboxes with spaces in them. Examples on how to deal with that would be nice too.
