In /etc/fstab, specify the "noatime" option for the partition on which
your mailspool reside.

This is a mount option too that you can specify in /etc/fstab. The sync
attribute could also be set with chattr(1).
Point 3 I know nothing about.

This is something I would *love* to hear about because I am suffering
from database corruption myself. I guess the Sleepy Cat documentation
could be a good place to look, but where does a total db3 newbie start ?

With the 2.1.x serie, this is a ./configure option :
--with-mboxlist-db=skiplist (do "./configure --help for the full list of
configure option). I * think* this is configurable in /etc/imapd.conf
int he 2.2.x serie. Am I right ?
BTW, would skiplist be the best mailboxes db on an mupdate master in a
2.1.x Murder ?
