dovecot, winbind and user folders

Kristian Rink
Folks;

I'm in the process of migrating an existing IMAP infrastructure to
something that should be dovecot based. We live inside a Windows AD
2012 realm and the servers use winbind for user authentication as well
as pam configurations to automatically create user home dirs whenever
the user logs in first.

Can something like this (mailbox is automatically generated whenever
user logs in first) be done with dovecot too? Any best practises on how
to work in such setups? I want to keep setup effort required for new
users as low as possible... ;)

Thanks in advance and all the best,
Kristian

Dovecot supports that yes, see https://wiki.dovecot.org/MailboxSettings
