      I use a system called dbmail to handle the mail store, pop3/imap/lmtp.
      It works great, and my users all use their email addresses as their
      logins and I don't have to have system accounts for them. dbmail.org
      I'm using imap SASL to authenticate smtp users and it works fine.

      Cpanel doesn't know how to deal with it, though. There are a couple of
      web based utilities to manage it.
