Features currently supported:
- First class IMAP support
- Bring your own domain
- Aliases and '+' suffixes supported
- Lightweight and clean management interface
- Quota support
- Sieve filters

One cool thing I just noticed is how complete and good the documentation is. I’ve never seen anything like it in “new” and “modern” projects. Simple html format, full sentences, clear and concise. Love it!
