    ZMailer does not come with MESSAGE STORE access program (POP3 or IMAP),
    so I really can't help here -- qmail comes, but only because otherwise
    people likely would not have means to read their "maildir" folders.

    Odd, I seem to be repeating this recipe:

        If capture at message routing time is ok
        (which captures *all* email going thru!  in- and outbound!)


    The  process()  script function has a case selector based on
    the file name, with tags something like:

		rfc822 "$file"

    Modify that to be:

		/path/to/your/db/capture "$file"
		rfc822 "$file"

    Would that do ?

        If capture at "local" delivery is what is desired, then
	some modification on how the "procmail as local delivery"
	recipe works ( doc/guides/procmail ).

    Essentially instead of running procmail program as the local
    delivery via sm.conf, you run your own program which must then
    in the end call *also* the procmail to do message delivery.

        Aside of the MTA related things, which in Z's case don't
        really need any changes there, you need to hack the message-
        store access subsystem -- which you pick from elsewere.
