I did that with only the UW code for years until I switched to
dovecot. Dovecot has its own little peculiarity that upsets the
dumb old "mail" program, at least over on that GPLed OS. I live
with dovecot these days because it is simple and more or less
dumb to use for my specific needs. YMMV, of course.
