Postfix has postconf for configuration issues, postqueue for queue management
and postsuper to execute superuser commands.

doveconf? dovequeue? dovesuper? dovestore for storage (mbox, maildir, dbox,
...) handling?

1. Create mbox|maildir|dbox mailboxes
2. Report mailbox size, number of messages, min.|avg.|max. message size
