i am not familiar with sendmail, so if you want to remain there i
can't help you. i am using postfix with virtual_transport = dovecot
and than in dovecot.conf i have:

  userdb static {
      args = uid=5000 gid=5000 home=/home/postfix/%n@%d allow_all_users=yes

you can costumize it so you don't have to move your mbox files, or you
can move your mbox files and costumize it to reflect that (it should
be noted that i use maildir).

IMHO a very good resource for mail related stuff is the isp style etch
tutorial at workaround.org

For far too long, power has been concentrated in the hands of "root"
and his "wheel" oligarchy. We have instituted a dictatorship of the
users. All system administration functions will be handled by the
People's Committee for Democratically Organizing the System (PC-DOS).
