Setting up Postfix and Dovecot to play nicely with mutt, mbox, Maildir and FreeBSD

I’m one of two people I’m aware of who still runs their own e-mail servers. I do this for a multitude of reasons, mostly because I love mutt and nothing else quite stacks up to it. Running a local mail server with mutt reading a local inbox is relatively simple. I run Postfix and it gets the job done with relatively little configuration. However, if you’d like to check mail remotely, and not rely on ConnectBot to SSH into your ARP Networks VPS, you’ll have to venture into the world of IMAP servers.
