Advice taken.. I did some extensive searching of the archived
discussions, and did not find any one thing that related to setup of
dovecot, nor could I find any kind of document describing setup of
sendmail/cyrus-imapd.  Even google did not return what I'd consider fair
game unless I were installing from sources, which I'm not.  That said,
is there a document that describes setup of dovecot?  All I really need
is pop, as there is only one or two mail accounts on the machine.
