Cyrus has a different set of trade-offs.  If you have hundreds or
thousands mail accounts, you need some things like quota, you have a
manpower to maintain all of that, and you can set up a "sealed
server" then surely cyrus is your choice.  OTOH there are also
frequent situations when you need an imap server for rather small
number of users, with simple needs and setup, and cyrus there is
heavily "overqualified".  It looks like that dovecot could fit here
if not those scary remarks that it may loose some mails.

Dovecot also should be mentioned in notes as a possible, already
provided, alternative to imapd-uw without leaving this position
solely to cyrus.
