Postfix is an MTA (Mail Transfer Agent). It has its own built in
'Delivery Agents' - LDA (Local Delivery Agent) and VDA (Virtual Delivery
Agent). A barebones postfix install will use one of these.
Dovecot is a POP/IMAP server - it allows clients to access existing
messages located on a filesystem somewhere.
'Deliver' is the act of the final placement of an email message to the
final destination filesystem.
It sounds like you have some reading to do...
