[Pkg-exim4-users] Change where Exim4 stores mail

I would like to change the location of where Exim4 stores its mail. I can
see in 30_exim4-config_maildir_home that there it should be possible to
define MAILDIR_HOME_MAILDIR_LOCATION but I can't find anywhere to do that.
For me changing the value of 'directory' in that file doesn't work either.
No matter what I do the mail is always delivered to ~/Maildir. Can someone
give me some help with this please? I have been running 'dpkg-reconfigure
exim4-config' after making my changes. What should the value of
MAILDIR_HOME_MAILDIR_LOCATION be? I would expect it to be:

MAILDIR_HOME_MAILDIR_LOCATION = /storage/mail/$local_part/maildir

Or maybe:

MAILDIR_HOME_MAILDIR_LOCATION = /storage/mail/%u/maildir
