I've been looking into upgrading a server and part of that upgrade
was to remove a lot of system users who simply need IMAP/SMTP access
to the machine and nothing more. Basically, I want to make /etc/
passwd a lot smaller than it currently is.
I was browsing through the documentation on the web site and found:
"The Cyrus IMAP server comes with two authorization mechanisms, one
for use with Unix /etc/passwd files, one for use with Kerberos."
Is there no way to use Cyrus IMAP with MySQL/PostgreSQL/BDB/
other_non_db_source as an authentication source? If there is, could
someone please point me to a web site with some details on how to
make this work?

source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it."
