I solved the problem now as follows:
With MODIFY_REPLACE instead of MODIFY_ADD my original approach seems to
I added an -S switch to the dovecot-lda sources and when it is set, I do
mail_update_flags(ctx.src_mail, MODIFY_REPLACE, MAIL_SEEN)
just before mail_deliver(...)
A solution without modifing dovecot's source would be more pleasant but
I don't see an option to match the destination mailbox with sieve or any
other way to set the seen flag upon mail delivery.
