This was quite some time ago, around the first release of their 2.x
product IIRC. It was the outlook connector that would save all calendar
entries from outlook to the IMAP server as binary messages, whereas the
Horde web front end saved the entries in xml, so Cyrus was at least able
to search them. So if you tried to access through Horde a calendar from
an Outlook user, it was basically inoperable, as the webclient had to
download the entire calendar mailbox, parse the binaries, sort them,
then display them. Useless for anything more than a hundred entries or
