home_mailbox = Maildir/
inet_interfaces = all
inet_protocols = ipv4
mailbox_size_limit = 0
message_size_limit = 20480000
mydestination = veezphone.com localhost.$mydomain $mydomain
myhostname = veezphone.com
mynetworks = 127.0.0.1, 62.75.170.62
myorigin = /etc/mailname
readme_directory = no
recipient_delimiter = +
relayhost =
smtp_host_lookup = native
smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtp_scache
smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
smtpd_sasl_path = private/auth
smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key
smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtpd_scache

I think you would set the system to make a mail directoryfor a new user in /etc/default/useradd.
