Are you sure that the imaps service that xinit triggers is dovecot? I
don't think so, you probably have set up different imaps services at
the same time.

The "imap-login" is surely from dovecot, but the other one I don't
know, but it must also be from dovecot - as I don't have wu-imap and
I get an output similar to yours. It shows without grep:

root 21228 0.0 0.0 6128 712 ? Ss Dec09 0:00
/usr/sbin/dovecot
root 21229 0.0 0.0 68788 1660 ? S Dec09 0:00 \_

imap-login
cer 16884 0.0 0.0 11356 1716 ? S Dec15 0:00 \_ imap

And I certainly do not have imap in xinit.

I removed imap package and dovecot still works and I still have access to
remote/local mail via imap. I now have no /etc/init.d/imap*, either, and
the service is no longer running.

I believe I was following instructions from the internet (?) that
included starting imap service via xinit.d and enabling that service
required installing imap.

Anyway, it apparently is *not* necessary and is now gone :^)

And mail still works. Unless I begin serving mail for someone other than
myself, I see *no* need for the hoops, dovecot/squirrelmail/imap. Remote
access via ssh is sufficient. The only possibility I see atm is being
somewhere with *slow* internet service, and that would cause difficulty
in either case.
