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!
