Re: is dovecot really better than uw-imapd?

I'd like to query whether most agree that dovecot is better than uw-imapd & whether it is going to remain a part of the Fedora/Redhat projects and is therefore worthwhile sticking with? I say this because I am seriously considering going back to uw-imapd. I think dovecot is much slower - & without apparent reason - on 2 systems that I have changed over (one an older machine running FC1 and another a newer system with FC2) that ran uw-imapd a lot faster. Also I keep getting a really irritating "invalid mask" error that I never got with uw-imapd.

I'm doing more research before throwing the bath water out with the baby.

I've heard positive stuff on this list about dovecot - has anyone else had my sort of problems? Anyone fixed them?

Oh - I do access the email via from multiple machines Squirrel-mail, Thunderbird & sometimes my collegue will also go in & have a look so simultaneous access is possible. I know that dovecot is not designed to share the mailbox (or Linux isn't - whatever) but uw-imapd never seemed to have a problem.

Isn't it ironic that after having sent this I upgraded dovecot and restarted it and now it is a lot faster? Sheesh. Jury is out now - I'll see what the new version does.

I answer all my other email on top of the quoted message I am replying to because this seems to be the standard way to do things in the business world. Indeed I like it because you can read answers straight up without having to scroll. So why does everyone on this list still append their contirbution? Anyone know? I find it a bit annoying.
