I'll first give a try with sendmail cause is already installed and people
here are not willing to change that easily! Is that the reason I found
documentation in the dovecot wiki for postfix only? I mean how to create
virtual users with postfix!

I wanted to give anyone the possibility to create an account. No specific
reason behind that. Just because its easier and quicker for the user!
