But these capabilities are not native to qmail. (I should have also
pointed out that Cyrus IMAP is not an MTA.)  qmail is nothing *but* an
MTA.  All it can do is route mail and dump it somewhere, possibly in a
fashion that Cyrus IMAP or imapd can take advantage of.

Exchange is a big box of tricks that includes MTA stuff and central
mail storage, as well as a quasi-directory and some other stuff I have
probably forgotten about.  I will not make comments on quality of same
as I am not an Exchange guru.
