Anyway you have to maintain sort of a connection from your mailbox to your
system user entry. When having a DN reference (e.g. 'seeAlso') a LDAP client
could use the deref control to retrieve attributes from referenced entries.
But you would need to convince the dovecot developers to make use of it.

IMO it does not make sense to have separate real mailbox entries for a single
system user. Oh well, it's your choice.

Ciao, Michael.
