Standard dovecot looks for users mail in /home/username and or /var/mail. All depends on distro and settings. Try creating user as /home/bob and see if that works.

From http://www.dovecot.com it says you can define per-user mail location. It does not really say how-to. Contact the devolpers of dovecot. They should more than like be able to help you.
