For my single-user personal use I quit using courier-imap as I was tired
of logs filling with it complaining about fam not being installed or
configured correctly. Asked here, searched everywhere, and never got the
issue resolved.

Haven't tried lately. Based on my experience one could put up a good
argument that courier-imap doesn't even work with fam. You mean to say
its worse with gamin?
