Thanks for the interesting discussion. I've decided to try Cyrus first, 
and if that fails, try one of the proposed alternatives.

I've configured Exim/Cyrus now, and they run. Only Cyrus doesn't like to 
authenticate the users. I'd like it to authenticate OS users, so this 
should be simple. When I try to log on, /var/log/maillog shows:

[] plaintext morten SASL(-1): generic failure: checkpass failed

My /etc/imapd.conf has:

sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd

So I guess the question is, how to make SASL authenticate OS users. Any
