This is flame war material.
Generally, I keep my hands off any UW software because the UW people
are not very security aware.
>What are peoples experiences/comments? Are the ssl variants worth using?
I like Courier because it is one very flexible package and it does all
variants that might be needed: pop/imap in both ssl and non-ssl. There
is even an MTA which I have never looked at, though.
As opposed to Cyrus, Courier uses a standard mail spool (in maildir
format) which can be accessed by third-party software for debugging
The author of Courier has a quite difficult ego, but since Courier
mainly works, you don't have to flame him too often.
