Because of the hosting panel solution running on the backends which uses 
Courier IMAP as the only option. Even if there were numerous requests 
for integrating Dovecot I wouldn't put my money on seeing it supported 
anytime soon. It took the same people significant amount of time to 
support Postfix as MTA, along with their terrible qmail integration.
