 I agree. The simpliest way is to have the user's email address be their

 Using Cyrus, why would I need to "add" a physical user to the system? Is
there something I am missing here?

 That's not as simple as it seems. Unique IDs have to be unique (therefore a
mechanism that allows you to check the uniqueness of the ID). Note that one
would have to come up with such a mechanism for email addresses as well but
since it's already present.

 The problem is the following: Users want to login using their email
address. Not unique ID a la compuserve, not john~example-com and other
barbarian means. Just their email address and a password. I don't like any
more than you do but that's what I have to come up with.

Regards and thanks for the input.
