1) As I understand you describe integration *without* support for cyrus
virtual domains (user at example.com, user at example.net).
2) Methods you suggest do not give a chance to reject messages to over
quota mailboxes *in SMTP session*. RTCyrus3 will use information
received via socket map query to deliver it.
