I have that beast running. There was an entry in the docecot.conf
like this, created by
doveconf -n -c /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf > /home/mail1/dovecot-2.conf

protocol imap {
  mail_plugin_dir = /usr/lib/dovecot/modules/imap
  mail_plugins = quota imap_quota
protocol pop3 {
  mail_plugin_dir = /usr/lib/dovecot/modules/pop3
  mail_plugins = quota
  pop3_uidl_format = %08Xu%08Xv

I commented it out and I can retrieved mail furthermore. :-)
Now I want to install dovecot-2.1-pigeonhole-0.3.1 to get sieve

Thank you everybody for the help and that great piece of software!
