Once you are in webmin interface, there is a tab on left hand side called Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server.
You can go through the options and start the service there.
You can make it to start at boot time as well.

[Edit]

Assuming your linux5 to be RHEL5

Hi there,

I would like to add to linuxlover.chaitanya's post. I am also running dovecot as an IMAP/POP server.

I believe that you have different options for what you want to do. From webmin, you can also choose to work with postfix as an incoming mail server.

Don't forget about procmail/fetchmail neither that will interfere in the process.

Cheers
