Postfix actual Mailbox location on the server

I'm trying to figure out the physical location of the mailbox that Postfix is using.  I administer my mailboxes using PostfixAdmin, and when I look in the mySQL file it says the mailbox is:

mydomain.com/myuser

But when I'm looking on the server, that directory doesn't exist.  But it must, because email is working fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try issuing the following command:

# postconf -n | egrep '^virtual_mailbox_'

Have a look at the line starting with 'virtual_mailbox_base'. This should contain the base path to your mailboxes.

If it doesn't, have a look at the file referenced in the line starting with 'virtual_mailbox_maps' an maybe posting the content you don't understand it. Take care that you don't accidentialy post your password.
