I wonder what mechanism webacces  is using to get the unread message count?
It must be accessible via SOAP somehow.

I’m having a hard time seeing the logic of using postfix on linux to support map lookups.
If you want a dedicated map lookup on linux, GWIA performs the same function and doesn’t require a copy of your messages on another server.

Ideally, there is a soap mechanism to access this information separate from web access.
