Default Recommendation for Imap and POP server

In the process of moving all my hosting back to Freebsd under my control and not others.

Last thing to do is setup the imap/pop server. So What do you recommend. This is mainly just for me, other users have email forwarded off server. I am using Sendmail. In the past (5years ago) I did have cyrus running. but it was a pain to get setup at the time.

dovecot works very well IMO.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.

Thumbs up

I also recommend Dovecot. I've been using qmail with Courier-IMAP, vMailMgr and Mailfront now for six years in production. However, I'm currently in the process of moving to Postfix+VDA+Dovecot. Things will get so much simpler, and it'll be enjoyable to have a well maintained and up-to-date MTA once again!

I'm using Postfix + Dovecot. It works out really well because I can also use Dovecot for SASL authentication in Postfix (so I can control who gets to send mail through my MX).

Dovecot works really well. +1

I am personally a courier+qmail fan, but it isn't the simplest to setup, however I am a bit of a security nut so it made sense for me to go with qmail due to its great track record.
