cyrus versions, filesystems, postfix versions, cyrus database formats being 

1k messages is nothing, i have severa with 300k or more, one with a 
million messages or more.  No problems I've used 1.6.x series nad now I'm 
in the 2.2.x series.  Only time I had corrupt mailboxes was from an unclean 
nasty shutdown and from bad RAM.
