Courier-IMAP seems to be putting a heavy load on my server when
someone accesses a mailbox with a large number of messages in it. I
recently scanned the mailboxes on my server, and sent some notices
out to clients who had boxes with old, unread messages in them. I
think that today some have gone online to pick up that mail, and I'm
suffering the consequences (server load of 14.0+).
What's the preferred IMAP server for a machine that will have 100-200
connections (plan for growth...) but may have an occasional mailbox
with 1000+ messages in it. I've searched the archives and tried to
google for "imap server performance" and "imap server comparison" but
haven't come up with much after an hour.
My impression is that Dovecot performs well, better than courier, but
I'm wondering if anyone can offer up some real-world numbers to help
me make my decision.
