Hm, I can't try that by hand, because in fact I only offer POP3s via
Port 995 to the world:
mail:~# grep -i ^protocols /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
protocols = pop3s imap imaps
IMAP on port 143 is neccessary to allow access to squirrelmail, and is
hidden by the packet filter from the world.

There is no Firewall or Antivirus-Code in the middle, or to be more
precise: I have tried to download from a linux box, where no firewall
and no virus killer is running on. The result is the same, as if I
download it from a Windows XP box, where firewall and virus killer is
mail:~# grep uidl /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
#pop3_reuse_xuidl = no
pop3_uidl_format = %08Xu%08Xv
Is that OK?
