Sorry, i have never used Courier and maybe never will...

The MDA part is up to you to setup so it is not possible to list all  
possible combinations of MTA (Mailserver), MDA (deliver mail from MTA  
to mailstore) and Mailstore/IMAP+POP3 Server.

If you are using Postfix as MTA you use "local" most of the time to  
store the mail in the courier mailbox files. With this you have no way  
of filtering/forwarding etc. because "local" has no interface for  
that. That's why many people use something like procmail and others  
which are feed by pipe.

As said i don't know Courier because we use Cyrus/Sieve since ages but  
you can have a look at maildrop from courier MTA which should be able  
to do something like this (http://www.courier-mta.org/maildrop/).
