A dovecot MDA is planned for the future. As far as I am aware, work has
not yet started on it.
Dovecot does support maildir++
(http://dovecot.org/doc/mail-storages.txt), but not quota support as
yet. Support for quota will likely be added after version 1.0 is
released in the form of a plugin.
If you want to help, you could use the starting point at
and implement quota support yourself!
