[Dovecot] Dovecot+LDAP lda problem

Hello everyone,

I need some help with Dovecot+LDAP config and local delivery.

We're using Dovecot 2.0.9 on Centos 6.4. Before, we used Qmail with the 
same LDAP. Our LDAP accounts have the attribute


which we used for mailing lists (OK, they are in fact mailing groups 
rather than lists). When the attribute is set to

deliveryMode = nolocal

Qmail did not deliver mail to the list mailbox, only to the accounts on 
the list/group.

Now with Dovecot(+postfix) I can't achieve the same behaviour. Can 
Dovecot be set up not to deliver the mail to the list mailbox if the 
list has the attribute deliveryMode = nolocal?

This is my /etc/dovecot/conf.d/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext
hosts = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
auth_bind = yes
dn = cn=admin,dc=nth,dc=ch
dnpass = xxxxxxxxxx
ldap_version = 3
base = dc=nth,dc=ch
#deref = always
scope = subtree
user_attrs = mail=user
user_filter = 
pass_attrs = uid=user
pass_filter = 
default_pass_scheme = CRYPT

Basicaly, I want to make check:
if deliveryMode=nolocal > do not deliver to mail=some.mail at tld.com (only 
to mailForwardingAddress)
else deliver normally
