Default FreeBSD email server ?

I am tinkering with replacing my Linux email server with FreeBSD. I have already replaced 1 email gateway, DNS server .. so have 2 email servers.
My current set up uses Cyrus-IMap and PostFix and from what i have seen dovecot2 is the most used in the BSD world..
Thx for any pointers..

I did manage to get this going using Dovecot2 and Postfix using SSL (993) to connect and TLS (587) to send when I am outside my network.
I used the following tutorials as a reference.
this is base on Dovecot only

The second one uses virtual users which I tried but didn't like, my goal was to have it as simple as possible using system accounts. The accounts that didn't need shell access have
/usr/sbin/nologin but only use exclusively email.
If anyone is interested, I may write a howto (sorry for the Linux reference) but it is really easy once you get used to the FreeBSD way..
