Hello Timo,

Nice to read from you.

Unfortunately, no; I'm still stuck with that problem, as described in:

Do you really mean "either", not "both"? I ask, because those patches seem to intervene at quite different levels (but I guess I'll have, one day or another, to get more acquainted with Dovecot's coding, so as not to come with such silly questions...).

Yes, but I fear some inefficiencies with such an extreme setting; in fact, I hoped to rely on Postfix for managing the service's life cycle.
