As here Cyrys server mostly is accesed by day, we have
shedeules scripts, tad move users across partitions at
night, and never had any problems. Somehow even if user was
logged in @ that exact time.

About same subject -  anyone knows any php code /  library that
could help do this same renamemailbox from php scripts?
And is there anywa quick way to change default-partition ?
So when autocreate mailbox executes, is uses some random or
whatever id for partitions?
