I looked now for alternatives which allow Kerberos authentication, easy configuration and active upstream/packageing and found: dovecot:


From a first look it looks quite nice, and I will give it a try now.

Does anybody know more? Any comments, ideas or other valuable input?

Dovecot is my personal favorite.  Use it on all networks I maintain!

Pros: supports multiple storage formats, including Maildir and mbox
     supports multiple quota formats, including Linux filesystem quota
     includes LDA for tight Postfix→Maildir→imap integration
     supports sieve
     is policy compliant (unlike Courier!)

I now found the source to backup that last claim above: http://www.imapwiki.org/ImapTest/ServerStatus

The only other server succeeding the full testsuite, Panda IMAP, is a commercial fork of the reference IMAP implementation, UW IMAP[1].

In other words Dovecot is the *only* FLOSS imapd implementation known to succeed that testsuite.
