The goal is to have a PDF library available at any time, with basic file search on document/message name, so a file share doesn't solve my problem (and I don't want any document management system, I just want access to files).

If outlook does it, I suppose I could code a basic PHP upload page that create an email containing the document and stores it into the IMAP directory (and integrate that to Roundcube, since it's my webmail).

I was just wondering if Cyrus would support any other method.
