This mail is much better than your previous ones. :-)

I think we're getting closer.

Please take a look at http://wiki.dovecot.org/MailLocation/Mbox , 
Section "Only /var/mail/ mboxes" (on the bottom of the page).

I think it exactly describes your setup and what you want to achieve.

According to this section, the correct mail_location line should look as 
follows: (Note I added the "spool/" to the example to match your 
directory layout.)


/var/empty should be replaced by an arbitrary empty directory your users 
have no write persission to.
