Yep, that's the one he looked at. I wouldn't call it anything, because I
haven't used it... but Norbert didn't like it. He's a home user, setting up
an imap server so his parents can occaisonally check their email. He just
wants to turn it on, and he doesn't want it running when he doesn't need it.
