i know i'm a bit late with this inquiry, but i was sorting through my backlog of email and ran across this again.
does anyone have any metrics with regard to this claim? my understanding was that cdb was a very fast database in itself. has anyone done some accurate tests between authenticating against cdb and mysql?

You have a good day now,
You would do better to use MySQL support if you are an ISP because chances are you will have a crap load of users and it will give you faster account lookups for email. Also you can use MySQL replication and a NFS server to setup a second server for failover. I would bet also having this stuff in MySQL would allow you to do reports on how many users per domain and last login and all that kind of stuff as well.. I use MySQL myself for my user backend on Vpopmail and have not problems with it at all. -John
