Re: POP -> IMAP w/ Maildirs?

The Cyrus IMAP server (http://asg.web.cmu.edu/cyrus/) is designed to handle mail for users who don't have accounts on the machine. I'd take a look at it.

I've been looking to do something like this and still haven't gotten it together. I'm going to suggest hacking UW IMAP to do this might be difficult. I didn't really consider it because I wasn't happy with its maildir support.
