I use mutt 184.108.40.206i, which works without problems. I have also used Thunderbird with it, as does my business partner, and spotted no issues there either. > > Second, how do programs like dovecot manage users?

There are several ways to do this - probably the most scalable will be SQL and LDAP, although you can use passwd-file as well. There's some good documentation on the web site, particularly http://wiki.dovecot.org/Authentication.
