There is a standalone Courier-IMAP package. With it, you can implement
just IMAP, or IMAP and POP3. The latter would probably be easiest since
it requires no additional configuration unless you want to block some
people from using one of the two protocols. Postfix, IMO, is still the
better choice for SMTP, though, so there is no need to use the courier
SMTP just for IMAP support.
