Thanks. I've been googling all day and reading up on the subject. It
appears that I may have trouble using Hebrew (utf-8) folder names in
Dovecot (or any other IMAP server) because the standard specifies
utf-7. Can anybody enlighten me on this?

Also, will I absolutely need postfix? I'm not even sure what it does-
all the documentation seems to assume that one is familiar with it. I
_think_ that postfix will pull mail from my POP3 server and deliver it
to the IMAP server. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance.
