The main redeeming feature of cyrus, with its huge size and
really PITA administration, is that it is possible to have
mailboxes _without_ corresponding accounts on a server.  So
if this is feature is killed it is difficult to imagine why
would anybody would want to use _that_.

$ rpm -qip cyrus-imapd-2.2.3-10.i386.rpm
.....
Size        : 18429389
....

and that is not all of it.  Also in a "description" part you
can read:

<quote>
It differs from
other IMAP server implementations in that it is run on "sealed"
servers, where users are not normally permitted to log in.
</quote>

So what is here really correct?
