Dovecot made it incredibly easy for me to start offering imap to a few 
users without changing anything for the pop3 users (about 100 users) and 
without converting from mbox. The push to offer imap was the need to 
install Squirrelmail to offer webmail for select users.

I removed qpopper, installed dovecot, and everything just worked. I was 
done in about 2 hours, thanks to the sensible defaults in dovecot.conf, 
and the FreeBSD ports system.
