I tried Cyrus once, and have been working with Courier for nearly 2 years 
before I tried Dovecot.
In my opinion Dovecot is much simpler than Cyrus, but perhaps more complex 
than Courier. However I found the dovecot documentation to be very helpfull.

The problem is how to make the documentation friendlier to people with 
little or no exprience managing a pop/imap server.

Having samples and sections for those different configurations will go a 
long way to help new users.
