Anyway, I think we won't support such configuration anymore because we
are bypassing Dovecot's IMAP agent.
I would encourage you to move to a IMAP/IMAP setup.
Feeding directly Dovecot database (Maildir) was supported by John as a

doing it because IMAP/IMAP was not supported at that time. Now that we
have IMAP/IMAP supported for years, direct feeding should be avoided.
