A good option, I have been using it for a while.

BTW, this ones for the coders...  upon deleting my test domain with 90K odd 
vdeldomain had problems.. it removed from  the database, but did not remove 
much of the directories, got some, but left problematic filenames (those 
starting with ?, ie: ?new ?cur ) etc, thereby a rm -rf wouldnt work, i had to 
unmount the disk and run e2fsck and took 25 mins holding down "y" to correct 
the issues before I could rm -rf the vast majority of that 90K, so perhaps the 
removal of physical directories process needs to be revisited?

Otherwise, I agree if you have more than a few thousand users in a domain, dump 
cdb and use mysql, the performace is greatly noticed :)

  there is a nice option in vpopmail called learn-password .. so if users are 
using pop3 it will set the pass that they have set on their client and put it 
on the server (mysql) in this case which I like it a lot.. users will not know 
about it and it will set password for their current one.

I agree that mysql is now the way to go.   
I recompiled in the early hours of this morning for mysql, set up alooping perl 
script to randomly generate user and vadduser them , created example.com , I 
had 15000 in minutes, I let it go to 90K :) added another, it instantly added, 
if I did that with CDB, I'd be waiting an hour I think.

I've used vconvert to move the live domain into mysql and after 12 hours, all 
is good, no impact noticed on concurrent auth requests, thats the only thing I 
am now worried about, don't want to setup extra hardware and sql if i can avoid 
it,  I might look for a pop3 stress tester later tonight..

(Rick, it's a webmail client, which is also why I am being naughty and top 
posting <G> because it screws things up sometimes, but not always which has 
puzzled me)
