Hi all,

When an IMAP or a POP client check every minute if there is a new mail awaiting,
does cyrus-imapd always look in the spool directory in the cyrus.* file ? or
does it looks in the DB files in the config directory ? What file is updated
when a new mail is stored ?

I am just wondering putting the spool directory on a NFS server and I don't want
it overloaded by aggressive clients.
