Just out of curiosity, Tanner, is that a two-way or three way comparison?
I did a migration some time ago from UW-IMAP to Dovecot, primarily for
performance reasons. I'm storing the mail in maildir format (as
opposed to mbox when I was running UW), using a virtual mailbox format
(not in homedirs).
I cyrus better than dovecot? If so how. Not that my home setup is
stressing things very much.
