IMAPserver Upgrades Complete 9/11/2001

Benefits include improved IMAP performance such as downloading and foldering of mail has been quite noticeable. Large folders (~700), while still not recommended, seem to have less of an impact on performance than with the current software.

Webmail is part of the new software and works quite well for smaller accounts. Those with large folders and/or a large number of folders may not like the performance. Instructions for using webmail will be provided once the server is operational.
