I'm using Cyrus IMAP (and POP) on my FreeBSD server. There is no direct correlation between Cyrus accounts and system accounts, unless you go out of your way to make it so. Authentication can be against a private database, Kerberos, an LDAP server, or anything else you can bind Cyrus SASL to. Also, while I'd previously used Sendmail as the MTA, I recently switched to Postfix without changing a single bit of the backend configuration. I mention this because it was important to me that I not be tied to a particular MTA. Hope this helps! -- Kirk Strauser
