I just tried dovecot-stable-20051206.tar.gz.
It takes me one additional day to get it work.
>From INSTALL file,  it failed to miss the following installation steps:

1) needs to create the file /etc/pam.d/dovecot
2) needs to create the directory /etc/ssl/certs/ and /etc/ssl/private/,
   configure doc/dovecot-openssl.cnf,
   chmod +x doc/mkcerts.sh

Not sure why it is not in the the file INSTALL.

For pop3 client configuration, I wonder if it is OK for me to use:

  #     Outlook and Outlook Express hang if mails contain NUL characters.
  #     This setting replaces them with 0x80 character.
  #   oe-ns-eoh:
  #     Outlook Express and Netscape Mail breaks if end of headers-line is
  #     missing. This option simply sends it if it's missing.
  pop3_client_workarounds = outlook-no-nuls, oe-ns-eoh

or dovecot can only allow one such as:
   pop3_client_workarounds = outlook-no-nuls
