Monkeying with Mail

Just FYI, I'm going to be messing around a bit with the mail setup, trying to convince the imap and pop servers to not suck so bad :)

Update: Well, didn't break anything, but in theory might have sped the IMAP up a tiny bit, though I can't tell myself. I tried the tip of removing USERID as according to this and this page, but if anyone knows how to speed up a postfix+uw-imap I'd appreciate it. I was going to move to courier-imap, but moving a system with lots of users and already set up heirarchy of MBox folders to a mailder isn't all that good IMHO :) What'd be nice is a imap server that can deal with both mbox and maildir folders dynamically depending on what the user has set up, so my users can convert over slowly if they want.

Help or suggestions appreciated.
