Default Need dovecot configuration help

A couple of days ago I applied via etc-update a new init script and conf
file for dovecot. Now I cannot get local LAN mail from it. I was
previously able to. My current dovecot version info is:

carter ~ # emerge -pv dovecot

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild R ] net-mail/dovecot-2.0.11 USE="berkdb bzip2 doc ipv6 ldap
maildir mysql pam ssl zlib -caps -cydir -kerberos -managesieve -mbox
-mdbox -postgres -sdbox -sieve -sqlite -suid -vpopmail" 0 kB

Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 kB

* IMPORTANT: 3 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
* Use eselect news to read news items.

The /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf file is as such:

carter ~ # cat /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
## Dovecot configuration file

# If you're in a hurry, see http://wiki.dovecot.org/QuickConfiguration

# "doveconf -n" command gives a clean output of the changed settings. Use it
# instead of copy&pasting files when posting to the Dovecot mailing list.

# '#' character and everything after it is treated as comments. Extra spaces
# and tabs are ignored. If you want to use either of these explicitly,
put the
# value inside quotes, eg.: key = "# char and trailing whitespace "

# Default values are shown for each setting, it's not required to uncomment
# those. These are exceptions to this though: No sections (e.g.
namespace {})
# or plugin settings are added by default, they're listed only as examples.
# Paths are also just examples with the real defaults being based on
# options. The paths listed here are for configure --prefix=/usr
# --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var

# Protocols we want to be serving.
protocols = imap pop3 lmtp

# A comma separated list of IPs or hosts where to listen in for
# "*" listens in all IPv4 interfaces, "::" listens in all IPv6 interfaces.
# If you want to specify non-default ports or anything more complex,
# edit conf.d/master.conf.
#listen = *, ::

# Greeting message for clients.
login_greeting = Dovecot ready.

# Space separated list of trusted network ranges. Connections from these

# Should all processes be killed when Dovecot master process shuts down.
# Setting this to "no" means that Dovecot can be upgraded without
# forcing existing client connections to close (although that could also be
# a problem if the upgrade is e.g. because of a security fix).
#shutdown_clients = yes

# If non-zero, run mail commands via this many connections to doveadm
# instead of running them directly in the same process.
#doveadm_worker_count = 0
# UNIX socket or hostort used for connecting to doveadm server
#doveadm_socket_path = doveadm-server

# Space separated list of environment variables that are preserved on
# startup and passed down to all of its child processes. You can also give
# key=value pairs to always set specific settings.
#import_environment = TZ

## Dictionary server settings

# Dictionary can be used to store key=value lists. This is used by several
# plugins. The dictionary can be accessed either directly or though a
# dictionary server. The following dict block maps dictionary names to URIs
# when the server is used. These can then be referenced using URIs in format
# "proxy::<name>".

dict {
#quota = mysql:/etc/dovecot/dovecot-dict-sql.conf.ext
#expire = sqlite:/etc/dovecot/dovecot-dict-sql.conf.ext

# Most of the actual configuration gets included below. The filenames are
# first sorted by their ASCII value and parsed in that order. The
# in filenames are intended to make it easier to understand the ordering.
!include conf.d/*.conf

# A config file can also tried to be included without giving an error if
# it's not found:
!include_try /etc/dovecot/local.conf

The dovecot server is on, and I am trying to connect from Please help!

I do not know which dovecot version you had before,
but 2.0.11 is the first 2.x in portage, so I suppose
it was 1.x

I remember updating from 1.x to 2.x was not so easy.
etc-update did not help me, configurtion changed a lot.
I had to edit a few new files in /etc/dovecot/conf.d,
some concerning authentication (10-auth.conf, auth-*)...
