There is probably an anecdote from the Bell Labs from the early 1970s which either solves your problem or improves your understanding of it.

comment Change mailboxes owner
Something like TRAP='test "$LASTFOLDER" && chown dovecot "$LASTFOLDER"' would probably do what you are asking for in a Procmail recipe file, but I am nowhere near convinced that this is a sane thing to do, or the right place to do it.

comment How do I deal with a compromised server?
Given the choice between an anonymous Python script and a documented, (somewhat) supported, well-understood standard solution, you are hoping they will pick the former?

comment Need linux milter solution to log email body into database
No, but it will have To: set up to reply back to your system; that's the whole point of this set-up. Have the email delivered to the database, then maybe run a trigger of some sort to have the system process it.

That's not how you do it. You'd run the script on whichever box is already processing your email. Send the email (with the proper Bcc: or similar to make sure it reaches the correct inbox) and the script will run.

Incidentally, by commenting here, you will reach approximately two readers (me and the OP); a new question will reach a significantly larger number of eyeballs.

comment Perform an exact match on the email address in From: header using procmail
@user227963 It's not actually hard at all, unless you have unchecked assumptions. Commin such assumptions are that the regex ^From: will somehow magically also match some other common sender headers, or that the email regex will somehow match an address in a different format which actually doesn't match the regex you used. But post a new question with the details of your problem and we can take a closer look.

Obviously, you could do the same thing with Maildrop as well. I'm not familiar enough with Maildrop to actually post a solution.

comment Move spam from dovecot public folders
The top Google hit is wiki2.dovecot.org/SharedMailboxes/Public -- did you read that? Is your configuration similar? How are you invoking Procmail for the public folders? You will need to add more details in order for this question to be answerable.

comment No SOA record — what are the implications?
+1 Mystery solved, thanks! It was partly shrouded by the fact that host simply replied has no SOA record for this domain, which is sort of understandable, I guess, but clearly wrong (I see now).

comment No SOA record — what are the implications?
Thanks for the pointer. Yes, it returns what I expect (nothing for the domain itself, just an SOA for the co.uk TLD).

comment No SOA record — what are the implications?
Thanks. I would still appreciate a bit more detail -- what are the mechanics, which are the parts of the SOA which affect caching? (I assume the caching servers would fall back to fairly conservative TTL values if none are specified, for example?)
