Okay, but see my other message about imapd not looking in the right
hashed directory.

Will do.  I hadn't noticed the Bugzilla link before.

Will it actually allow me to set it below 10 minutes?

There's no way to clean up the phone lines in rural areas or to force
people to buy good modems (although when they have lots of problems we
recommend that they do).  As I said in my other response to John, I
don't think IMAP would work very well for our customers, and
user-visible changes always cause lots of suffering--the support guy has
to spend hours on the phone when we could have him doing better things
and I have to listen to his complaining.  There are other good reasons
to use Cyrus, though.
