Virtual users or system users for a mail server

Everybody seems to be configuring their mail server using virtual users instead of the traditional system user approach.

I find system users easy to configure and even more secure, since IMAP and POP3 processes can run under the system user account (of course disabling shell access).

I keep wondering if perhaps I'm missing some interesting advantage of using virtual user accounts?

Anyone like to comment on this?
