That seems to be the concensus. How do you do user authentication with
Cyrus, can I interface to pam? I don’t want the users to have to have two
passwords to change.
That can improve webmail speed a lot. As

The web interface is not the problem, it is IMAP that is very slow.

Cost is not a problem, provided it is reasonable. I can budget $1,000 for a
35 user solution that gives me speed and ease of use with groupware
features. I would love to implement a complete groupware solution such as
groupwise, but I don’t know enough about the iptfalls, advantages, etc and
reading the spiels from the vendors just gives me a headache. It’s a shame
no-one will tell you what you want to know without the stream of verbiage
promising eternal happiness if you buy from them.
