The mail is stored in a K6-2/300MHz running Cyrus IMAPD 2.0.17 on NetBSD
1.6. The client is a dual Pentium III running FreeBSD 5.0-RC. Since
Cyrus has its own way of storing mail, there's no such thing a direct

to IMAP, I tried Cyrus first (my other choice was Courier), and since it
works so well, never looked back.
