pop3 / imap daemon

I'm working on a solution for authentificating my pop3 and imap users using a mysql database. Multiple domains should of course also be supported. I would like to stay at the database level for the whole user-configuration ... except of course the database connection details of course and the base service configuration

As MTA I'm currently using Postfix BTW.

I'd like to receive reports preferable a comparison with each other ? :-)

Of importance is
a) performance
b) security
c) ease of managing

Currently I am thinking between
courier-imap (vpopmail)
Cyrus IMAPd

It would be nice if there could be an easy way to do pop before smtp ... like storing the time and ip of the last login in the database so I could do a select!
