      Can you explain the main differences with those two setups? Whether
      the domain that is served by dovecot is in virtual_mailbox_domains or
      relay_domains doesn't seem to make much of a difference.

      virtual_mailbox_domains = example.com
      virtual_mailbox_maps = ${map}vmbox
      virtual_transport = dovecot

      relay_domains = example.com
      relay_recipient_maps = ${map}vmbox
      transport_maps = ${map}/foo
      # and there: "example.com dovecot:" or
      # "example.com lmtp:..."

      Granted, when LMTP delivery is used, the second setup makes it easier
      to use dynamic recipient verification, but apart from that, with maps
      available for Postfix... what's the difference? Both solutions seem
      pretty equivalent to me.
