Hi LuKreme,

Do you have any special reasons NOT to use standard layout (Maildir under 
home) for virtual users, as suggested in the docs and by users here?

Best wishes

$ doveadm user kremels
field   value
uid     1033
gid     1033
home    /home/kremels
mail    maildir:~/Maildir
system_groups_user      kreme

$ doveadm user user at virtual.example.com
field   value
uid     89
gid     89
home    /usr/local/virtual/user at virtual.example.com/
mail    /usr/local/virtual/user at virtual.example.com
mail_location   /usr/local/virtual/user at virtual.example.com

The local users doesn't have a mail_location set at all, and has a very 
different mail definition. This seem to be a side-effect of the fact that 
the home of the virtual user is the top level maildir, but should I set mail 
to maildir:~ ??

Where there is a party, everyone is there
Everyone will leave at exactly the same time
When this party is over it will start again
But not been any different be exactly the same
