But surely you said the same thing about KMail when you started using
it. :)  Using an IMAP server like Dovecot is more future-proof.  If you
decide, now or in the future, that you don't like Claws Mail, or if you
ever find you want to access your mail from another system that Claws
Mail doesn't run on, then things will be easier for you if all your
messages are on an IMAP server.  (And since IMAP servers store messages
in a standard way, you can always switch from Dovecot to something else
if you need to.)
