[Dovecot] Problems with Mailstorage path.

Hi all,

my environment:

Fedora Directory Server 1.0.2

Currently I've configured dovecote to find user's mail folder like this:
mail_location = maildir:/var/vmail/%d/%u/Maildir

All my domain mailboxes are under /var/vmail, as evident. But there
are some users whose mail folders are directly under /var/vmail like
this one:
/var/vmail/myuser1 at mydomain1.com

also, some have their folder names starting with caps like:
/var/vmai/mudomain1.com/Myuser1 at mydomain1.com

This creates problems when these users try to login. Here I want
dovecote to kind of assemble the mail storage path from
mailMessageStore ldap attribute of the particular user. i.e, dovecot
should add the mailMessageStore attribute's value to /var/vmail.

Can somebody help me in solving this issue?
