Interesting question as I just spent the night moving away from Maildir
and to the mbox format. I was using Courier on a SPARC IPX and it worked
quite well. However, I really wanted to use spamassassin, but it brought
the poor little machine to it's knees. So I have migrated to UW-IMAPd
on RH 7.3. Supposedly, mbox is faster than Maildir, but Maildir is
better for things like shared access. I don't really think it matters,
but couier is definitely easier than Cyrus IMHO and for a smaller set of
users it is just as good or better.
