Read doc/install-upgrade.html, doc/changes.html might also be interesting.

You can separate mailboxes onto different partitions, yes, I'm not sure
why you would limit it to first letter though.

You can define in imapd.conf items like:

partition-u1: /imap/u1
partition-u2: /imap/u2

and then move mailboxes between them with the rename command in cyradm
(e.g. rename user.rjs3 user.rjs3 u2)

Just be sure that the defaultpartition imapd.conf option specifies the
partition to get creates done on by default, and that all the partitions
have the hashing directories configured properly (e.g. /a, /b, /c, etc)
and all permissions are set.
