I don't think you can... I really respect your desire to make things as 
easy/simple for people new to dovecot,

No amount of effort can help someone who is unwilling to learn the bare 
minimum about a new program they want to use - and if they aren't even 
aware that dovecot has a config file (as does every other server app 
I've ever used), or what it is named or where it is - well, I don't 
think I need to say anything more.
