Sorry, maybe I was not clear enough. Above is a quote from "man
cyrus.conf" which is equal both on FC3 (the cyrus-imapd on FC is mainly
based on your great packaging work, as you know) and on OpenBSD 3.7.
Ok, if it works without problems not using [IP] syntax, this is fine.
Though putting plain IPs into squared brackets is a usual thing in the
mail area ;) A close look at the source code should show up how the
master deals with this configuration.
