As I said - that is about using dovecot LDA for delivering INCOMING mail 
so that dovecot can then serve it up. It has nothing to do with sending 
OUTGOING mail. Dovecot has nothing to do with that (and probably never 
will - unless Timo decides to build a suite of products, like Sam has 
done with Courier.

Well, you must already have postfix working at least partially, if new 
mail is being delivered. So, if you want to get sending working, I'll be 
happy to try to help, just email me privately.
