It can't work like that. You need to have all of the these homes to
be /var/mail/vhosts/$DOMAIN/public if you want them to be able to create
any new folders. Then if needed add ACLs to the users. For delivering
mails to these users you could set up a Sieve script to do it, or maybe
something else..
