Without seeing your configuration I can only guess but, if you haven't
changed the default configuration, you should only need to add
'home_mailbox = Maildir/' to main.cf.  Change 'Maildir' to suit the name
of the users home mail directory.  Note the trailing forward slash on
the mailbox name as this tells postfix to deliver in maildir format.

If this doesn't work, post the output of the command 'postconf -n' which
will show where your config deviates from default.
