Subject: [gentoo-user] Courier-imap-4.5.0 noticeably faster than 4.0.6
Date: Wed, 16 Sep 2009 20:44:26
1 Ran into some issues updating to courier-imap-4.0.6-r3 on my VPS so I
2 decided to take the plunge and go straight to 4.5.0 which is unstable.
3 4.5.0 is much faster and Thunderbird barely registers email in the Inbox
4 before the messages are moved to the appropriate folder. My installation
5 is also a combination of cyrus-sasl, authdaemon from courier-authlib,
6 Mysql based virtual accounts, ssl certs for imap and smtp, and Postfix.
7 No changes were needed in courier-imap config files other than restoring
8 imap.conf settings.
9 I don't think Courier-imap is faster than Dovecot based on other
10 people's experience, but has rather reached speed parity with it. If
11 you're already on Dovecot and happy, stay, if you've been thinking about
12 Dovecot but have a complex system to move I'd recommend trying the
13 upgrade to 4.5.0.
14 I also update gamin and use +fam with courier-imap which might affect
15 the overall speed. The update from 0.1.9 to 0.1.10 doesn't look like it
16 would account for the increased speed.
