	Because of the way Cyrus stores the message, it doesn't have to
read ad the whole box into memory.  It has a nice little cache of things
that you might be searching on, basically all the headers, in a structured
file it can use for building message lists, and the message bodies are
stored in individual files.  A folder with a *LOT* of messages on a linked
-list type filesystem might suffer, but UW would've died long before this.

SA,           My girlfriend asked me which one I like better.
