I must be dense. I've been trying to get Dovecot 2.0 going, but I
can't even get it to connect. To keep things simple, I'm just using
plain IMAP port 143. I'VE tried both passwd& shadow authentication.
With passwd, I get a password error, but nothing happens with
shadow.
Further on this, ps auxw|grep dovecot shows:

jknott@acserver:~> ps auxw|grep dovecot
root 12191 0.0 0.0 10752 864 ? Ss 11:34 0:00
/usr/sbin/dovecot
dovecot 12192 0.0 0.0 8636 904 ? S 11:34 0:00

dovecot/log
jknott 12349 0.0 0.0 7792 832 pts/11 S+ 11:40 0:00 grep
dovecot

This is less than the docs show. Also, telnet to port 143 gets:

Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK Waiting for authentication process to respond..
* BYE Disconnected for inactivity.
Connection closed by foreign host.

So, I can't even get authorized to connect.

Start with enabling auth debugging in dovecot, then try again and check
the log file (/var/log/mail).
