[Dovecot] FW: Sendmail + Deliver as an LDA

"deliver" is working fine.
/usr/libexec/dovecot/deliver -d test at domain1 < testmail
creates the virtual mailbox. (uid,gid,mail,home through passwd sql)
Currently we have a virtualusertable
(FEATURE(`virtusertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable')dnl)
virtualusertable looks like:
user1 at domain1 user1 at hotmail.com
user2 at domain1 user2 at hotmail.com
For the moment, an email sent to test at domain1 is forwarded to the system-user.
The system-user has a .procmail-config where he places the incomming mail into the correct virtual-mailbox.
Now we have replaced "local_procmail" with "deliver":
FEATURE(`local_procmail', `/usr/libexec/dovecot/deliver',`deliver -d $u')
an email sent to test at domain1 is placed in the system-user's real-mailbox.
How to keep the external-forward-functionality of the virtualusertable and to be able to deliver into the virtual-mailbox?
