Default Cannot install dovecot with the urpmi command

Greetings all

First of all, thank you very much for this helpful site. I just want to say that I am new to the linux system and I am currently trying to install a Mandriva Spring Free 2008.1 server following the guide here http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...riva-2008.1-p5, however, I am getting the following message when trying to install dovecot:

[root@mydserver var]# urpmi dovecot
> No package named dovecot

I don't know how to proceed from here. Can somebody point me to the right direction. I'm sure there must be another way to install dovecot.

Thank you very much in advance.

Did you configure the urpmi repositories as shown in the tutorial?

If so, and there's still no Dovecot, you can search for it on http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3 and downlaod it manually.
