I'd definitly go for dovecot lda, that way you can use sieve to filter 
your mails.

I am using lmtp from postfix to dovecot following the directions in:

The howto's linked to from the dovecot wiki contain much valuable 
information and helped me allot in configuring dovecot/postfix.

It depends on your distribution if postfix is chrooted or not and what 
path to the dovecot lmtp socket needs to be configured. In the wiki the 
postfix 'mailbox_transport' configuration is for a chrooted postfix 
instance as for example seen on Debian.
