I was wondering if I could skip running a Postfix or other MTA along
with dovecot and just let mail be delivered directly to the final host
It's no problem to have Postfix do a virtual_mailbox_domains lookup
before handing it to local LMTP, but it would be simpler with only Dovecot.

But how does the LMTP proxy deal with temporary errors? It has no queue
like the SMTP-server ?
