     i know dovecot can act as IMAP and POP3 proxy ..... but i'm having 
a hard time configuring it. Actually i'm using a simple dovecot 
configuration with virtual users stored on MySQL. My dovecot-sql.conf is 
pretty simple:

[root at correio dovecot]# cat dovecot-sql.conf
driver = mysql
connect = host=localhost dbname=DATABASE user=USERNAME password=PASSWORD

default_pass_scheme = PLAIN

# Get the mailbox
user_query = select '/var/spool/mail/%u' as home, 
'maildir:/var/spool/mail/%u' as mail, 8 as uid, 12 as gid, 
concat('*:storage=', quota) as quota_rule, 'Trash:storage=100M' as 
quota_rule2 from emails where endereco = '%u' and ativa = '1'

# Get the password
password_query = select endereco as user, password, '/var/spool/mail/%u' 
as userdb_home, 'maildir:/var/spool/mail/%u' as userdb_mail, 8 as 
userdb_uid, 12 as userdb_gid, concat('*:storage=', quota) as 
userdb_quota_rule, 'Trash:storage=100M' as userdb_quota_rule2 from 
emails where endereco = '%u' and ativa = '1'
[root at correio dovecot]#

     i've read several docs about configuring proxy on dovecot but all 
of them says about proxying specific users .... i'm interested on 
proxying some domains. I couldnt find a way to configure that nor some 
howto similar to that.

     could anyone point me some documentation on configuring dovecot as 
IMAP/POP3 proxy for a full domain and not specific users ? Ideally i 
would have a list of domains that should be proxied to somewhere else 
and all the other domains would be threated locally.
