Do you have a large namespace or something?

What kind of session management are you using?

Since you spent a week not being able to login due to UW-IMAP changes
(if I read your message correctly) that you have blamed on Horde/IMP,
I'd say there are other variables to be considered...

Even within the Horde code, there are other variables like your
configuration of it, bugs in php acceleraters if you use them, etc.

Switching to dovecot will improve performance and configurability for
sure.  Now, will it improve (or reduce) reliability?  That I can't

Because you didn't provide _any_ real information about your problems
to allow us to help you, so the only thing we can do (besides ignore you)
is to try to start to pull information from you, which we do based on the
number of past postings of people to the list.

Well, we have to start somewhere.  If you provide more information,
then we don't have to ask non-relavent stuff...

If all you say is "I can't login" or "It is slow" my first response is
to ask you questions which will reveal if you are having the most common
problems people report...  And the most common reasons for those two things
are imp/config/servers.php, turba/config/sources.php, and the datatree
table in the DB...
