Sendmail local user email storage question


Hello Friends,

I need to configure sendmail to make it store every user's mail somewhere else where I need, something like /mail/userX etc.

How can I do that?

Tweak the "QueueDirectory" directive?

Well I read lil and Google it and I think it's not what I'm talking abt. I need to config sendmail for user specific email dirs, I don't want to config dir where queue is stored...

What I mean actually is, diff user's mail at diff dir I wanna store...

[EDIT]

I Googled more and I got something, that I need to play with procmail.

Code:
CORRECTHOME=/directory/to/store/mail/in
MAILDIR=$CORRECTHOME/
PMDIR=/directory/to/store/procmail/info/in
LOGFILE=$PMDIR/log
VERBOSE=on
Or something like this in procmail config file.

OK now question is which procmail config file? Each user have specific file? And what about global config...?
