Don't believe you. I searched my "lists.redhat" folder for the word
"squatter" and it found 0 results from 13486 messages before I let go of
the return key. It took less than two seconds to return the 55 hits (from
the same 13486 messages) for the word "mailbox". My client is Pine, and my
server is the Cyrus 2.2.3 RPM rebuilt on a meagre (twin 1Ghz PIII, 768M
RAM, slowish 4-drive RAID5 array) FC1 server.

Hint: man squatter :)
