It will unless your site's MTA doesn't honor it (happened to me) :)
But depending on how the MTA is configured you might not need it at all
(sometimes procmail is called automatically if ~/.procmailrc is found).

You can tell procmail to put the mail anywhere you like w/
  MAILDIR=/path/to/dest/dir
in ~/.procmailrc.

Don't forget to instruct mutt to read mail from the same directory:
  set folder=/path/to/dest/dir
in ~/.muttrc.

Should work. As you're using mutt you can tag all files at once ('t')
and then move them all to a different folder (';s').
