    I noticed that there is a (new ?) checkbox called "Disable (local) delivering" in the email account settings. That is why I had a look at the latest ISPconfig manuel (v3.1), but couldn't find information about that checkbox.

    What effect does it have if I activate the checkbox? :)

    It prohibits mail from delivering to that mailbox (ie. via lmtp or the 'deliver' lda), which has some implications and enables some use cases. "delivery" is where sieve filtering takes place, so don't use this if you want the autoresponder, custom filters and the like to work. It would be used for eg. srs compatible mail forwards (mail forwarded in postfix will work correctly with opensrsd installed) that also needs to send mail (the mail forwards in postfix, but the username/password still work for sending).
