>cyrus server searching is extremely efficiant

That's good to hear. I also noticed Squat for Dovecot. I've actually been thinking of switching to Dovecot (from Courier) for a while now. I guess if I ever do I'll try that plugin.

So, I guess it is possible to run a mail server with indexed full-text search in it using readily available software. I do wonder what percentage of actual users have their mail on a server so configured, though. Squat's page makes it sound rather resource intensive, and it is only in an optional plugin.

>searching on the client across all folders, 15 min
>searching on the server, 4 seconds

That just shows that whatever client you're using is rather crap, and also failed to make an index.
