Good article, Pete. They lay out a pretty convincing argument for using
Cyrus with BerkeleyDB.
I will admit though, I have never really felt a noticable problem with
my Courier services. But, I tend to sort my mail and leave no need for
11000+ messages in the INBOX, so it is not a fair comparison. I DO have
some VERY large archive folders, but I tell my user agent not to check
that folder everytime I check for new messages. Like most things, it
runs great with a little planning.
One small thing I like about maildir is the ease of use outside of a
user agent. They are just files in a folder structure and this is a very
familiar model to me. I can back up, move around, count, get sizes,
search, and such to my hearts content. Also, they are just text files;
I can cat|grep them easily if need be.
just my 2 cents,
