Full support for Dovecot is planned for 11.24.

Dovecot manages resources far better than Courier (especially if you have any OS X Mail.app users on your server). It is also more configurable than Courier.

Courier is using a lot of resources, I having a lot of problems with that, webmail is freezen the machine, and the loads are too high.
I have to disable webmail and imap for the load maintain lower...

I hope cPanel make a script for Courier2Dovecot and maintain all the folders and data of the email accounts...
