yes, if clients did pop3 setup to the server it works as designed, only 
fail is then clients wanted imap :=)

ask clients to make another imap setup, while keeping the pop3 setup, if 
both uses the same sasl login on dovecot, then in iphone its a matter of 
move mails withing folders

i disabled pop3 on dovecot, no more problems with my own clients, not 
even from iphone users
