TestInstallation is lovely document. I got Dovecot to answer
everything pretty well, considering that TLS and such don't apply here
(the server is on my LAN, and it's just 10 or 20 feet of Cat5e away).

It seems I was sending the wrong password to the server (my local
password doesn't work anymore; the one on the IMAP server does).
Thunderbird and Geany still aren't working, but Sylpheed is. And I
still don't for sure understand why. In 10-auth.conf, there's talk of
password database(s), and I suspect one of mine got bent somehow.

Next step: finding them.

I thank all of the respondents for the help and suggestions. I'm kinda
back on line, but loss of email is a life-threatening catastrophe :-)
