i run a small mailserver here .. about 25 mail accounts only
one reason to use dovecot is to switch to maildir since mbox via imap is 
a pain in the ass when you got a couple hundred mails in one mbox file

currently its running via smarthost but i want to open pop3/ssl, 
imap/ssl and some secure smtp to the outside soon
