I am trying to use dovecot as lda.

I have put this line in my .qmail-default file:
#|/var/qmail/bin/preline -f /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/dovecot-lda -d 

It is working correct with real addresses but couldn't find forwarding 

This is my /usr/local/etc/dovecot-sql.conf:
driver = mysql
connect = host=localhost user=vpopmailuser password=vpopmailpassword 
default_pass_scheme = PLAIN
password_query = SELECT CONCAT(pw_name, '@', pw_domain) AS user, 
pw_clear_passwd AS password FROM vpopmail WHERE pw_name = '%n' AND 
pw_domain = '%d'
user_query = SELECT pw_dir as home, 89 AS uid, 89 AS gid FROM vpopmail 
WHERE pw_name = '%n' AND pw_domain = '%d'

It is querying vpopmail table all the time but forwarding addresses are 
in the valias table, so it couldn't find forwarding addresses.

How can I solve this?
