Interesting.  I thought it was using LMTP but it looks like 
has it running /usr/lib/dovecot/dovecot-lda to deliver. Would LMTP be a 
better option? It has always worked, so I didn't look at it very closely.

I thought I had something in the postfix/dovecot combination using LMTP, 
but it looks like I was wrong about that.  The communication between 
postfix and mailman3 running in docker containers (which is a very 
recent addition) uses LMTP.
