Hi Ross,

Yep it's very new. Still version 0.99
But the indexes really help.
Though they do add a good bit of extra disk usage :(

It's the default IMAP server supplied with Fedora now.

Yeah thats what I asked.
I think it monitors the access time on the directories, and if they
change it rebuilds it's indexes. I don't know much of the details.
The dovecot list or website would be more help.

OK. I don't use those, so I wouldn't know.
Maybe it's on the feature list?
