As laptops and mobility become more effective and prevalent, your job as a system administrator is to provide users with easy, secure access to their data.

hmm i strongly prefer dovecot instead of cyrus.. but that’s just me
(or, fpr some, binc)
How can a person disagree with such convincing dovecot arguments.
