Or .. Well, two choices:

a) return /home/exim/user as home directory from LDAP

b) return mail=maildir:/home/exim/user/.maildir from LDAP.

You can't set multiple default_mail_env settings currently, so the home
must come from LDAP. Or I suppose alternatively you could use static
instead of LDAP as userdb if all your virtual users use the same UID.
