I'll try.

I assume you mean the accountname, not their real, human name.

What happens when you try using:

[backends.php beheaded]

Note the variable I added to your 'DEFAULT' line.

Alternatively, I suppose you could try would be something like:

    'DEFAULT' => '/var/mail/$LOGNAME'

since procmail should understand $LOGNAME directly, without any help  
from Horde, ingo, imp, etc.
