Moving vmail folders under user home folders
« on: November 07, 2017, 02:51:29 AM »
Is there a way to configure Dovecot or Postfix to create email accounts under user's home account. For example /home/user/vmail/...?
I think I have seen that type of setup on CPanel. This way the backup of accounts would be complete (mysql, user data and email) and for set-up where you have larger partition for /home directory instead off using default partition of /...

I have read online about Dovecot settings like:

mail_home = /var/vmail/%d/%n
mail_location = maildir:~/mail

The problem is that user account may have multiple domains for example:

www.main.com - main domain account
   www.main2.com - 2nd domain

if to use settings above to modify them to:
mail_home = /home/{main-user}/vmail/%d/%n
mail_location = maildir:~/mail

Is there a way to get {main-user} variable? Any ideas how that could be set-up?

Any input is greatly appreciated.
