:) yes i agree. but the problem is that some of the existing ldap
entries need to be changed. there are more than 15,000 mailboxes and
problem users are randomly distributed. currently i'm using
courier-imap and it perfectly lands each user in his/her own mailbox.
the only problem i find with courier is that it becomes sluggish at
peak hours.

again the same. the problem users are distributed among more than
15,000 mailboxes.
