And global and per user :>

IMHO it should chceck user's home directory in /etc/passwd
and write to /user's_home_form_etc_passwd/Mailbox (in standard Mailbox
format) or /user's_home_form_etc_passwd/Maildir (in Maildir format)
depending on zmailer configuration.

It's nice.
For me storing mailbox in user's home is good thing because I must
set quota only on one (/home) partition and /var/spool/mail isn't needed.

PS. Sory for my english.
