This could be good. I'd never looked into the LDA - I will study up on it.
Someone else was helping out here and I thought I'd shed some more light on what
I'm doing here...
Let's say someone has an account with Yahoo, for example. My Python code is
fetching email from the user's Yahoo! account and placing it into the Dovecot
Maildir storage for a particular user. Now when the user retrieves their mail,
they are doing so using my Dovecot - my Dovecot instance is acting as a proxy,
Thanks for the responses!
(Is there an IRC channel?)

How about injecting the mails into the LDA. It will take care of proper
delivery without the need for your programm to know the internal
workings of dovecot.
Sigmentation fault. Core dumped.
