I use dovecot-lda on OpenBSD for local delivery into Maildir, and, by default, the inbox maildir is, effectively, located at ~/Maildir/{tmp,new,cur}, however, all the subfolders are within ~/Maildir itself, e.g. ~/Maildir/.Sent/{tmp,new,cur} etc.

I use mutt. When I do c ?, to change folders, and navigate into ~/Maildir/, it just shows the inbox, and doesn't seem to allow to see the folders under the inbox.

It seems like it's possible to make this work by putting something like the following into ~/.muttrc:

set folder=~/Maildir
set mask=".*"

This seems to work great until you accidentally go one level above, from ~/Maildir/ into ~/, and then going through the list back into ~/Maildir/ seems to always bring you into the inbox, with the c ? list no longer letting you see any folders beneath ~/Maildir. But as long as you don't go .., this seems to work great.
