I've got over 3500 users (many with multiple mailboxes) and gigabytes
of mail. Isn't there a more automated way of doing things without my
having to "design" the wheel from scratch? If not, is there any
documentation on the structure of the mailboxes.db file -- I'll write
my own bit of code to build it if I need to.
