I've noticed that the IMAP daemon is very memory hungry. I've noticed our server slowing down and swapping and top reports that imap is taking 50-70MB of memory. Why so high ???
Is there a bug or is it just the way the IMAP protocol works (can't see how). I've tried 2 IMAP servers with similar results.
Is there a light weight IMAP server that anyone recommends ??? I'm using Debian 3.0 on PowerPC and Intel architectures. Thanks, Brendan Simon.
