dovecot would be setup as virtual mailing hosting using LDAP
there are a few howtos out on the net.
Samba4's LDAP can be treated like any other LDAP server in this regard.
your main gocha would be that the mail system should run a local samba DC
as LDAP queries would produce quite a large number of ldap traffic with a
large user/ traffic base
