Yes, that is certainly possible. I do that to manage multiple domains.

I create the mailboxes with 'cm user/<user>@<domain>'.

I dont remember if there was some additional setup involved to be able to do it

This springs to mind though. In /etc/imap.conf:

virtdomains: yes
altnamespace: yes
unixhierarchysep: on
