    Does anyone have a 'perfect' setup guide to using Dovecot as an imap/pop3 server?

    I'm using Centos and Dovecot is the default mail utility, which should be a lot easier to manage than the suite of cyrus apps.

    We dont have a setup guide for dovecot. Did Dovecot uses Maildir or MBox files?

    In most cases you dont have to configure pop3 or IMAP deamons at all for ISPConfig, because they mus just authenticate against the passwd and shadow files of the system and ISPConfig supports MBox files in the systems default location or Maildirs in the home directorys of the users.

    I'll have a play later then. FYI Dovecot (http://www.dovecot.org/) supports either mbox or maildir configurations.
