Actually, installing a local Dovecot IMAP server is easy. Most
contemporary Linux distributions include Dovecot in their respective
package repositories. Macintosh has Dovecot in MacPorts. The various
BSDs have it in their respective Ports collections.

Configuring Dovecot for IMAP isn't difficult, either. It's simply a
matter of specifying which protocols to use (imap, imaps), what IP
address to listen on for multi-homed nodes, where the SSL certificate
resides if SSL is in use (maybe not necessary if you tunnel through
SSH), and paths for spool file and mail storage. And that's it.
