I wonder if it posible to replace qmail + vpopmail with sendmail + dovecot?

The idea is like this:
- use sendmail + milter API to filter spam/virus and deliver the email to
  the dovevot MDA (LDA)
- dovecot should save the email to the directory as specified in the 
vpopmail DB
- maintain the vpopmail BD (users + passwd)
- use dovecot pop3/imap for the clients
- use sendmail again to receive the email from the pop3/imap users and
  deliver the email to the internet as usual.

Anyone has done this? It is posible in the paper, in the real world?

many thanks
