[Dovecot] dbus support in dovecot?

I am trying to transition from ubu10.04.4 LTS to ubu12.04.2 LTS, but in the 
changeover I want to setup dovecot as a local only imap server so that I 
can read & respond to email from any of the other 4 or so machines on my 
local net.

To that end, and given that I have a well working setup right now, using 
fetchmail driving mailfilter as a pre-check, procmail as the MTA delivering 
to /var/spool/mail/me, with clamav and spamd in the mix to intercept and 
send to /dev/null the worst of the spam, or to a quarantine file if clamav 

The current transfer mechanism is driven by a script that uses inotifywait 
to detect newly delivered mail in that directory, and which then sends 
kmail a dbus message to go get the mail.

Since I want to insert dovecot into this chain, does dovecot have a dbus 
port, and if so, what is the format of the command it expects?

Thanks all.

Cheers, Gene
