:)... already tried this in the past and it just don't work... 80% of 
users never apply changes and prefer getting very angry and call the 
support. Which is exactly what I want to avoid.

This sounds better and I though tc could help going that way, but there 
is nothing informative in going this way. I know what I ask for seems 
crappy and probably is out of the scope of what dovecot is supposed to 
do, but this would be temporary and I wanna make sure it is not possible 
before digging somewhere else.
