There's an IMAP book by orielly, but it's out of date. The mailboxes.db
file is as good as the version of berkley DB which is being used. Which
(as I found out this morning) is not as good as skiplist.

Of course, there's no better documentation than the source code! ;)

With regards to using it in a production enviornment, I can't speak for
version 2.1.17 (or whichever version, i forget) we've been using for the
past 48 hours with 25,000 users. But for 2.0.16 which we've been using for
over a year and a half, it's been VERY reliable, and using that little
script, we've been able to recover from more than just a few hardware
