Maybe this page should be deleted, or at least it should point to
http://wiki.dovecot.org/PasswordDatabase/ExtraFields/Proxy which
contains newer description how to do it.

nologin and nodelay shouldn't be needed anymore. Also port=143 is the
default with IMAP (and with POP3 that'll cause POP3 connections to be
proxied there too).

Actually the imap/pop3 proxying code doesn't share code with SSL
proxying code.
