I posted this question a week ago on postfix's newsgroup
alt.comp.mail.postfix but got no answer.  I apologize for being a bit off
topic but I thought maybe someone would be able to help me on this list as
my need is a bit related with mailscanner works with postfix.

Here's what I sent :

I'm using postfix associated with mailscanner. When a mail arrives, postfix
puts it in the hold queue, then mailscanner takes it, scans it and moves it
the incoming queue.

Now, I'm planning to migrate the imap backend to another, beginning with
some users (there will be a transport table to handle presence of both imap

I'd like to run this process :

1) Put mails for user foo in some hold queue
2) use imapsync to transfer imap data to the new backend
3) set up a transport table with special mention for user foo
4) release mails from the hold queue for user foo

Mailscanner using postfix's hold queue, I'm affraid I won't be able to use
it? Do you know an alternative I could use ?

Thanks in advance,

Mikael Kermorgant
