Yes you can use secure imap with dovecot
near the beginning of dovecot.conf
protocols = imap pop3 imaps pop3s
basically in my config I have pop3 secure pop3 imap and secure imap
Why not just use a VPN to your home machine that way you can access the
newsgroups too and you would have no issues with dovecot being open to
the outside world
Expect eircom DSL to go down about 2 days after you leave and not return
until you have been home 10 days ;-)
