I'm running Cyrus in a FreeBSD few years. This time I have five or six
hosts, with FreeBSD versions from early 4.x up to 4.8-RELENG and
different versions of Cyrus. And I have one installation
(cyrus-imapd-2.2.2.b) on 5.1-RELENG. Everything works good.

Good. It lacks documentation, but it forces you to get thru and when
you're thru, you know how it works :)

I cannot say anything about performance, 'cos my requirements are rather
weak, but it is stable.

Good choice.

System administration: more fun than being beaten with a sledgehammer.
