I just do not use aiaiai with e-mail. Actually, I use it very little
nowadays. Jacob Keller was using it extensively several months ago, and
made a lot of improvements (see git log). He was using the e-mail
workflow. Last time I used aiaiai, I had it connected to gerrit and got
patches checked every time someone pushes one for gerrit review.

Nowadays I sometimes run it from command line to check some patches.

Jacob has the maintainers' role, but I did not hear from him lately.
IIUC, he used postfix too, but I may be mistaken. The idea is to just
make the e-mail client pipe e-mails to the aiaiai-lda script with the
right options. The script will implement queuing, it will collect
patches until the entire patch-set is collected, then pipe the entire
patch-set to aiaiai-email-test-patchest. The latter will figure out the
project the patch is against, and ultimately, pipe the patch-set (all
patches will be contatenated to a single mbox) to aiaia-test-patchset.
