actually that's not true, but it's a common misconception. UW IMAP does 
support multiple access (in some respects actually better than Cyrus) *if* 
you use mbx mailboxes. I've used that for years and I'd always recommend 
this setup for a smallish installation. Cyrus wins hands down as your user 
base grows into the hundreds or thousands, but for just a handful of users 
UW IMAP is much easier to set up.
