[Dovecot] procmail, mutt, and Mac OS X

I'm using procmail to deliver my mail to my maildir boxes, that are 
watched by dovecot, and I configured mutt to use imap to access these 

After installing a more recent procmail (the default one from Apple has 
a bug with "/" in the filenames, so I used the one from Fink), I sent 
myself a message, which was delivered correctly to Maildir/.INBOK/new (I 
can see the file there). However, I cannot see this file from mutt. I 
think it is dovecot that is not seeing it, as I tried quitting and 
restarting mutt.

So my question is: how can I tell dovecot that it should check the 
mailboxes, and is there a way to make it do so regularly? Or is my 
problem from somewhere else?

Thanks a lot,

Alan Schmitt
