How To Make Dovecot Strip Realm

RE: How To Make Dovecot Strip Realm
This is exactly what I did with it, replace uw-imap.

The only problem I ran into is with mailbox path mapping. Uw-imap exposes the entire users home directory whereas Dovecot only exposes
the mail directory.

For uw-imap clients had to configure a path of "/mail" into their e-mail clients. With Dovecot it was necessary to remove the path or just change it to "".

Dovecot behaves better than uw-imap in so many ways. The biggest is that it handles multiple simultaneous sessions. It also supports both pop and imap, so the Qualcomm popper we used to run is no longer necessary.

Where uw-imap makes a copy of the mailbox and works out of that, Dovecot memory maps it. For large mailboxes like we have here, this is much more efficient.
