Not answering your question, but:
I use vpopmail with dovecot too, and it works flawlessly without
using the dovecot LDA. What would be the benefit of using the
dovecot LDA since you have to go through vdelivermail anyway ?
It adds a step, which has a cost; to be worth it, the benefits have
to outweigh that cost.
The benefit is sieve, which provides server side filtering. With the use
of multiple (imap) mail clients (phones, tablets, etc), having the
server do the filtering/filing of messages makes good sense. I don't
think having the messages pass through vpopmail as well as deliver would
impact performance all that much. If that's what it takes, to me I
expect it'd be worth it.
