I know one this has been something that's been batted around a few times now. 
Last I recall the developer (and I'm sorry, I can't remember his name off of 
the top of my head) was working on some custom modifications to vdelivermail. 
Unfortunately what is required is fairly complex. The pipe method while 
functional is potentially dangerous. Especially when you start considering 
nesting them. If something breaks in the middle, your mail is lost due to how 
error codes are handled between pipes. I think he was working with the actual 
file descriptors being passed....but I'll admit my memory is fuzzy, and it got 
beyond my understanding near the end.

Just search the archives. The full thread should be there.

Subject: [vchkpw] dovecot LDA with vpopmail


i am using on my qmail/vpopmail installation dovecot as IMAP/POP3
server. at the moment i have only some of the users having their mail
filtered through sieve/delivered to the mailbox by dovecot LDA. for this
users i have added a line to their .qmail-default file file as written
on http://wiki.dovecot.org/LDA/Qmail
-->   |/var/qmail/bin/preline -f /usr/lib/dovecot/deliver -d $...@$user

this works like a charm. but i would like to have dovecots LDA used for
ALL my users and i haven't found a way to activate it for EACH user
without changing/creating every users .qmail-default file.

as i understand, vdelivermail is delivering the mails to the users
mailboxes? so i would have to "say" to vdelivermail that it should use
dovecots deliver, or what is the right way to do that? or is it just not

greets & thanks for help
