The problem i’m trying to solve is about dovecot capability to serve quota status via Postfix policy server protocol.
It works fine when the destination address is a real mailbox, but if it’s a Postfix alias, then the email is not rejected because dovecot doesn’t know this user.
Maybe it’s a wrong idea to try to make Postfix alias visible to dovecot.

Do you have another suggestion ?
