I use getmail, dovecot, and postfix. I have getmail and postfix
forwarding to dovecot with sieve, and a root .forward file for receiving
server logs and filtering to a directory of their own. I haven't
integrated dspam and the dovecot-antispam plugin in yet but will.
Postfix doesn't handle anything other than local mail, and even then
The main trouble I had was getting the local storage layout the way *I*
wanted instead of defaults, `mail_location =
maildir:/var/mail/%u:LAYOUT=fs:INBOX=/var/mail/%u`. I was also able to
import and filter all of my Mail.app 1.3 mail via a simple perl script I
wrote using /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/deliver. With the
getmail/refilter trick, fixing sieve problems can be easy and has it
almost all server side.
