OK, thanks.

I'll try that.

Too late. Also, as directories corresponding to IMAP folders always start with a dot, it appeared quite natural to me to have ``home''  and ``sieve'' at the same level as ``.dovecot'' (and ``cur'', for that matter).

Ah, and what about the WIKI ``user_attrs = .., mailDirectory=home=/var/vmail/%$'' example that I don't understand?
