It's a real english word, pronounced as such.

  Dovecot \Dove"cot`\, Dovecote \Dove"cote`\, n.
     A small house or box, raised to a considerable height above
     the ground, and having compartments, in which domestic
     pigeons breed; a dove house.

It was suggested by Bostik (Mika Boström) in IRC when I was still
calling it just "imapd" and asking for naming ideas.
