Hi i didnt test apple mail to dovecot , but its
broken to courier imap.
It has a long history of bugs, i.e producing double mails
and nower days it has problems with attachment names
( this may be produced by adope or apple updates )
I never had such problems with thunderbird to courier, cyrus, dovecot
using many versions of the client and servers so i call Apple mail a
broken client anyway, but that only my feels about it, no need to flame
about that, i recommend my customer not to use it in a prof. use and go
to thunderbird instead.
