Default postfix + dovecot LDA: bounce, user unknown

Greetings fellow former BSDF denizens,

I recently set up Dovecot to work in conjunction with Postfix as a IMAP(s) server on my FreeBSD 7 box. It works fine.

Now, I would like to configure Dovecot as the LDA, so as to be able to use the sieve plugin for sorting mail on the server, but whenever I activate Dovecot LDA in Postfix's main.cf and send myself a test messsage, I get an error message in maillog:
May 8 20:47:17 venus postfix/pipe[36077]: 4022B5C38: to=<cb@lim.nl>, orig_to=<colin@lim.nl>, relay=dovecot, delay=0.02, delays=0.01/0/0/0.01, dsn=5.1.1, status=bounced (user unknown)
Postfix's virtual LDA has no such problem:
May 8 20:49:39 venus postfix/virtual[36181]: F3DF05C37: to=<cb@lim.nl>, relay=virtual, delay=0.05, delays=0.03/0/0/0.01, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered to maildir) 
May 8 20:49:39 venus postfix/qmgr[36091]: F3DF05C37: removed
Here is the LDA section in dovecot.conf
postmaster_address = postmaster@lim.nl
mail_plugin_dir = /usr/local/lib/dovecot/lda 
mail_plugins = cmusieve log_path = /var/log/dovecot-deliver 
info_log_path = /var/log/dovecot-deliver 
auth_socket_path = /var/run/dovecot/auth-master }
My maildirs are here:

mail_location = maildir:/home/colin/vmail/%u

and Dovecot IMAP has no problem retrieving messages from that location. What could be going wrong with Dovecot's delivery?

Thanks, and have a nice day.

I suspect you enabled the dovecot LDA through master.cf (?)

The option mailbox_command in main.cf should work better:
mailbox_command = /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/deliver
Not sure if this is the reason thing don't work, but you could try it...

Also note that you should separate tags with commas (,) not with spaces (You created one very long tag instead of several separate) ...
