At least with up-to-date Postfix and Courier (I believe Cyrus has its
own mechanism) you can do this with virtual mailboxes and virtual users.
"Mailboxes" will then be created automatically - but you'll have to
clear up the mess yourself when users move on. Openldap can be made a
very powerful part of this.

You mentioned Debian - it's highly likely you'll have to go for non
Debian-standard stuff. If you plan on continuing with Postfix, subscribe
to the Postfix mailing list.
