Hello Eric,
I would like to firstly thank you for your "magic wand".
That is to say that, indeed, it did turn out that Turba was the worst
culprit. I must say, I am *quite* amazed that given that there is
no difference between the two source.php files in the two installs.
Yet in *this* install, it made *such* a difference. You are *most*
amazing; in your ability to ferret that cause from my input. Truly
amazing. Thanks for your undying patients. :)

As per; installing a new IMAP server. Given that I run almost all
of my server out of a DB. I can't imagine it would take anymore
than 30min. tops for Dovecot. Since they handle mailboxes in the
same format (the mailbox itself). All else looks pretty straight
forward. In so much as I have read so far. Feel free to correct me
if I'm wrong. As I haven't done it yet (I'm still reading the spec's/

Thanks again for taking all the time to provide so much input.
I greatly appreciate it.

Shameless self-promotion follows...
