The answer is: yes.

I called it via command line, the 'diff' command shows no differences
between the two destination files (correctly delivered in the 'new'
directory in the two maildirs) and I have the
maildir_copy_with_hardlinks=yes line in the /usr/local/etc/dovecot.conf

Has anyone tested this function or it is a non-existing feature and the
documentation about hardlinks means something else from what I mean?
