[Dovecot] specifying home/sieve/sieve_dir relative to mail_location

That example means that if you have in LDAP "mailDirectory=domain.com/username" field, and you want user's home to be /var/vmail/domain.com/username, then you can set mailDirectory=home=/var/vmail/%$ where %$ gets expanded to domain.com/username.

I don't think it's relevant to what you want.
