I struggled with Dovecot's proxying for a few days, and even though we
eventually got it to work, the non-support of DNS names in that field
really made this feature unusable for me.
I have a few suggestions (other than the support for DNS names):
* The server's config should have a list of all values for proxy
which refer to its own host: like the PROXY_HOSTNAME in Courier.
* There should be a way to turn on proxying globally without us having
to set it for each and every user.
Even though Dovecot does work as a proxy, the presence of the above two
attributes are absolutely essential in real world use.
Please do correct me if some of these things are already possible.
