    Is it possible to simply change the web interface (System -> Server Config -> my.server -> Mail -> POP3/IMAP Daemon) from Dovecot to Courier-imap, after installing the courier-imap packages, and expect it to work?

    I guess not because I am seeing these erros and googling seems to indicate it's something to do with dovecot rather than postfix. I can't find a tutorial for a recent Ubuntu + courier-imap so I guess I will have to follow the older Debian one.

    I really just want to use maildrop instead of sieve for local delivery so I can add Dspam for extra spam filtering as the default spamassassin settings are only about 80% effective but I'm used to 99% filtering with Dspam.

    Any suggestion how best to swap, without a complete reinstall, from Dovecot to Courier-imap for the purpose of using Maildrop to add Dspam filtering?
