OK, I figured it out. I misunderstood some of the configuration comments in
the dovecot.conf file. Dovecot could use better documentation IMHO. Anyway,
Night all! Thanks for the help!

Check out the chkconfig program. It's designed by Red Hat to manage what

root# chkconfig dovecot on
turns on the dovecot service in the default runlevels specified by config
