Ya know, what I find most interesting about a service like gmail is the 
fast searching. Cyrus has got squatter, but as I indicated before, 
really need something to control what mailboxes I squat at night because 
simply cannot squat the entire server every night.

The other thing that gmail and Zimbra offer, seems to me, is seamless 
searching across folders. Not sure how/if Cyrus could deal with that 
since seems to me to be largely a client issue.

Speaking about all this webmail, has anybody taken a look at travmail?

I haven't had a chance to peer to closely at it yet, but looking at his 
flash demo, it would seem to have an interesting and flexible interface. 
Perhaps it has potential.....
