FC5 does not have IPOP3/IMAP?

I am building a new home server and just installed FC5 with a bunch of yum'med RPMs. The problem is I cannot find the IPOP/IMAP package (imap-200??) that I used to have in my old server running RedHat AS3. I tried a couple of packages found from but they do not install correctly.

Any help? Thanks.

It's been replaced by "Dovecot". The UW-IMAP product used on AS3 was rather poor-quality, and Dovecot is a lot better.

Oh, I've actually reached "dovecot" in my search in rpm database but had little idea what it was for. I started dovecot service and I am now able to connect to port 110.

Thanks a lot!
