I got it now. That makes sense.
So I followed the wiki:

and simply cut the "-d {recipient}" from the pipe.
# delivery through dovecot
dovecot   unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
  flags=DRhu user=mail:mail argv=/usr/lib/dovecot/deliver -f ${sender}

Now It accepts emails and it says that those are delivered, but I can't
see those in my Maildir.
Here's the log:

May I ask now, do I have to connect my ldap users through NSS
(libnss-ldap) in order to make dovecot believe those are local users?
