I believe that as well, especially as I don't have tons of folders
(some of my users do).  I'm using Horde.

With two machine and two phones, it's difficult to keep track of that

out in table form which connections for which user were from where.
And so now I have another reason to upgrade.  I need to fix the mess I
made with postfix first though.
