Note that we are currently looking into what it takes to beef
up Dovecot to play nicely as IMAP server within a Kolab Server.
This was triggered because a customer is taking interest in it
and because Dovecot can deal wit NAS situations better than Cyrus imapd.

Also helping us to push the extensions for Cryus IMAPD upstream
is highly appreciated.

Yes, it is good that this enables more people to play with the Kolab
