This wouldn't be very useful normally. If you see "Fatal" prefixed error from dovecot-lda, it's nearly always tempfail (75). If it crashes, the error is different, but then it wouldn't be able to log the error anyway.

Run a script instead, something like:


if [ $USER = "foo" ]; then
  exit 75
  exec .../dovecot-lda $@
