[Dovecot] .imap files

Thanks for the quick note Troy.  I did the 1.0.0 upgrade while ago.  Again,
I did a fresh install of FC6 over the weekend (not an upgrade), so the
dovecot config file is "new".  I guess I'm trying to see how to convert or
somehow migrate he actual contents of the old .imap* (user email) files to
the new dovcot.* files.  Any ideas?

FC4 used the older 0.99 dovecot installs (0.99.14 it looks like), you 
will need to read the Wiki and docs, and migrate your Dovecot config to 
the newer style -- once you do that, I bet everything will start working 
as intended.


Before even starting, the first thing I'd do is upgrade to the actual 
1.0.0 release, there were... 25(?) further release candidates beyond 
rc7. Axel has an RPM ready for you:
