Timothy, ignore all that's being said about dumping KMail - it works perfectly 
with dovecot imap.  I use it all the time.

You appear to have a configuration problem.  Which version of dovecot are you 
using?  There are slight differences.  Dovecot's web site has a good deal of 
documentation, including sample configuration files.  If you are using 0.99.x 
dovecot I'd be happy to share my config file with you.  IIRC the main 
difference between that and 1.0.x is in the handling of sasl.
