But it (-n) will deliver (rather than reject) into the regular INBOX
if the folder for the extension does not exist?

I'm using Postfix, but with dovecot as a transport.

main.cf has:
virtual_transport = dovecot

master.cf has:
dovecot   unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
  flags=DRhu user=vmail:vmail argv=/usr/lib/dovecot/deliver -f
${sender} -d ${user}@${nexthop}

dovecot.conf has:
mail_location = maildir:/home/mail/%Ld/%Ln/mail

I wonder if that ${EXTENSION} works in master.cf.  I guess I gotta go
back to Postfix for reading.  I assumed this would be a Dovecot
