Not exactly. SQL is advantageous if you somewhere down the road want to
implement a web based management system for administering accounts.
However, what about 1 domain, at how many users would it be faster to
use SQL over the default cdb file?
Is it beneficial at 10K users or 50K users in the same domain, or no
real gain at all until 100K users, or never?
I am uncertain whether SQL provides performance gains under any
circumstances. Maybe someone could expand on this...
It's good to have them stored in mysql if you are moving domains over
from another server using rsync and miss a trailing / on the domain name
while using the --delete delete flag.
This is because vpopmail will recreate the users directory from the path
stored in mysql.
If you were using .cdb files, those .cdb files would have been deleted
as well and *I* would have been up a creek without a paddle.
Not that I've ever done that.
/me whistles into the wind.
I know this doesn't answer your question but I thought I'd share.
