I'm looking at the step by step instructions included at

few questions that relate to local implementation and some different
assumptions, as follows:

on the whole, a reasonable howto but it does contain some broken advice.

1. don't use uw-imapd. ever. it's garbage. if you want a pop/imap daemon
that supports both mbox and Maildir (as well as both SSL encrypted and
unencrypted connections), then use Dovecot. Courier's OK too if you just
need Maildir support, but i prefer Dovecot.

	Would your answer be different if the goal was to only support
SSL-encrypted pop/imap connections? (no unencrypted traffic)

	thanks much in advance if you have the time to answer,
