If the only purpose is to track if a user already existed or if its a new user for whom directories and mailboxes have to be created. Or are there other use cases I just read http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Mountpoints.

What's the point in doing that? It would be great if there was a way to just disable the mount point tracking if I don't store indexes on different mounts and don't use the dsync replication feature, even if it's just a compile time option.

and in case you are running dovecot only as a proxy it needs
not to care about *any* mountpoint at all - consider the mess
if every software out there would act this way.....
