courier-imap installation

Hey everyone,

I'm a n00b to FreeBSD, and I'm trying to install courier-imap with
5.3, but I'm not sure what steps I should be taking. I did:
pkg_add -r courier-imap
However, when I do:
/usr/local/libexec/courier-imap/imapd.rc start
(as the courier-imap manual instructs), it gives me:
/usr/local/etc/courier-imap/imapd does not exist, forgot make install-configure?
Which is odd, because imapd actually seems to be in
/usr/local/bin/imapd, and I would assume that courier-imap was
configured properly when it was prepared as a port. I would just
change the relevant line in imapd.rc, but I don't want to go mucking
around with something I don't fully understand -- especially because I
need this server to be extremely secure and "by the book." Also, is
there a way to manage courier-imap via Webmin?

Sorry if the answer is obvious or really common -- posting really is
my last resort after searching this list and the web for help. Outside
of this problem, I'm loving FreeBSD. It reminds me of my days running
NetBSD/mac68k on my Mac IIsi. :)

Thanks in advance!
