procmailrc not working

Below is my $HOME/.procmailrc. All recipes work excep for "Subject: [SOGo]". All these messages end up in the inbox, none end up in the sogo folder. I can't figure out what's wrong.
# Send all mail with "[SPAM]" in the subject to spam folder, do not send to inbox.
:0:
* ^Subject: .*\[SPAM\]
/user/mfoley/mbox.spam

# Send all mail with "[SOGo]" in the subject to sogo folder AND send to inbox.
:0c:
* ^Subject:.*\[SOGo\]
/user/mfoley/2014/mail/sogo

# Send all mail with "Attempted Break-ins" in subject to breakin folder, do not send to inbox.

It is working as you configured it.  You are using the c flag meaning copy which it does and stores one message in the sogo mbox and the other copy continues through the remaining filters, failing to match any additional filters, it is delivered to the inbox.

Yes, that is what I *intended*, and it is ending up in the inbox, which is what I want, but it is *not* storing a message in the sogo mbox. That's the problem.

none end up in the sogo folder Are permissions OK? (writable by user ID of daemon)

Procmailrc can have logging, which you could activate and disable around this filter
LOG=/path/to/where/you/want/logfile
VERBOSE=on # to activate
:0c:
* ^Subject:  .*\[SOGo\]
/home/mfoley/2014/sogo

VERBOSE=off # to deactivate

Run mkdir -p 2014/mail to makesure the directories in the path exist.
If you want the email differentiated by year, that can be achieved if needed.

Doh! What a moron! That was my problem!!! My actual path should have been ~/mail/2014, not ~/2014/mail. I just wasn't seeing that. I switched to the correct path and all is well.

Thanks for the suggestion to check the path.
