Please Note:

I expect you to read any reference material I link to in my answers. If the answer to your question is contained in said reference material and the reference source is not likely to disappear I will probably not cut and paste it onto SF unless it's really cool/interesting/obscure.
In return I promise not to link anyone to goatse or tubgirl

I expect you to think for yourself and do a little thinking (and mayhaps even some work) to solve your problems. If you aren't capable of this, please exit the profession via the door on your left.
In return I promise to do my best to aim you in the right direction, and to clarify any points you have trouble with

Note that this really relies on some intimate knowledge of your IMAP server and how it handles its storage backend (some don't use the filesystem to store individual files, though Dovecot does). It's possible that preserving symlinks may not be what you want in cases like this but that determination is left as a key detail for the implementer (Know Your System - I don't know Dovecot well enough to be sure so this is just a general cautionary note.)

@eichertc Your question has been answered (quite thoroughly). You are not required to like the answer, nor are you obligated to accept it. Imposing additional constraints on your question to invalidate an answer is poor form. If you would like to discuss this further please take it to Meta - comments are NOT the place to grouse about answers you do not like.

comment How to make Postfix to POST incoming mail to an external server?
and the app is? It's expecting things in what format? The emails are formatted how? Details like this are important. The answer to your question right now is "You write an application to parse MIME email and do what you want, then pipe the message to that application" - but that's not a very helpful answer. If you want a useful answer you need to ask a detailed question.

WHY do you want to do this? What specific practical problem are you trying to solve?
