imap server alternative

I just recently discovered an alternative to the pop/imap servers supplied by cpanel, called dovecot. I find it very interesting(it supports maildirs, which is a must for large mailboxes) but

1) I'd like to make sure the virtual domains are properly supported(the format they support seems very close to cpanel's so I am hopeful)
2) I know cpanel will try to replace them if I install them as rpms.

Has anyone experience with replacing cpanel's daemons?
Can anyone offer guidance?
