What are you using? Dovecot, Courier, UW? I tried using Dovecot, but it was
painfully slow. I have 6.1GB of mail, and the initial sync was painful and
some MUAs also cried when they had to open each mailbox as well.

Also, using Maildir, mbox, or proprietary as the backend? I've tried both
mbox and Maildir. While I see the advantages of Maildir, it feels like a
serious waste of inodes and has higher overhead due to all the
open()/close() shuffling.
