That's strange.  My default install for FC1 gave me dovecot, which was
included in FC1.

Probably won't touch it.

It's too bad it didn't install dovecot when you installed FC1.  A FC2
upgrade would be perfect.

Well, you could stay UW-imap and just get updates for it from Fedora Legacy
or whoever will maintain updates for FC1 after FC2 is released.  If your
current server is working fine and you don't see a need to change anything,
then just leave it running.
Your other option is to move to dovecot or cyrus, like you've been
investigating.  And with the number users and quantity of mail you have I
recommend cyrus.  It's more robust for that much usage and it's not likely
to go away anytime soon.
Whichever you decide to go with though, you'll end up needing to become
somewhat of an imap expert, so check out there websites and definitely get
on their mailing lists.
