[Dovecot] Sub-folder outside of the mail store

How do I create an IMAP folder that links to a folder outside of the mail store?

For example, I have all domains under /var/spool/mail/virtual/domains.net/ and users under /var/spool/mail/virtual/domains.net/user

Amavis delivers quarantine mail to /var/spool/mail/quarantine

I would like one user (postmaster) to have a folder /var/spool/mail/virtual/domains.net/postmaster/.Quarantine and link it to that folder  - is that possible?  Is it safe?  The client the postmaster uses can then reinject and deliver the mail if need be (i.e. it's safe or the attachment has been stripped).
