I used the configuration Local only sendmail that delivers all mail to a directory, but it is not enough for me.

The solution above store all emails into one file - /var/mail/MYLOCALUSER. How to store emails separately - one email in one file?

I don't know if this applies to your use case, but I guess you want to configure postfix to use the Maildir format instead of a single file. For my Mail server I followed the Debian Wiki Article: http://wiki.debian.org/Postfix#Maildir

Yes, just configure the postfix as Maildir format is enough for me - help.ubuntu.com/community/… –  BlueMan Apr 2 '13 at 11:37

Sendmail may use procmail as local mailer (AFAIK It is typical on Linux).

Procmail can be configured to deliver to directory (maildir or mh) in ~/.procmailrc or /etc/procmailrc.
