sorry in advance because Im sure the problem is stupid, but after two days trying different configurations from Google and Serverfault it still not working. Im Newbie in Postfix/Dovecot

After upgrading Debian, I configured (for first time) Postfix with Dovecot. Pop3 works fine now but Imap not (login fails)

Ok, solved. The problem was Pop3 was still working with old program Courier (even the logs shows was over Dovecot...) and Imap over Dovecot. Dovecot was difficult to config because the mail bd was made by hand, so I finally installed courier-imap (thats remove Dovecot-imap) and the server was recovered.
