I'm using  FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p2 with Postfix, Cyrus-SASL2, amavisd-new, clamav
and dbmail (only IMAP with stunnel) with a pgsql backend.

I would like to switch back to a filesystem based e-mail backend
(maybe dovecot) - feels better to me.  Furthermore I think that dbmail
has no good pgsql support (it has some bugs with IMAP) - 
maybe you would like to try mysql instead (*hirgs*).

If you would like I can show you my configuration files and table
