in imapd.conf on virtualdomain set to yes not userid.
Also add alternativenamespace yes and unixhierarchysep: yes.

Then add users like,

cm user/olle.bolle at sub.domain.or.standard.domain.tld

this makes the emailbox  olle.bolle at sub.domain.or.standard.domain.tld
but this does not make the emailbox INBOX so it can't collect incomming 

Add a inbox like this

cm user/olle.bolle/inbox at sub.domain.or.standard.domain.tld

About the making of mailboxes like user.olle.bolle or user/olle.bolle is 
depending on the altnamespace and unixhieraky in imapd.conf.
