I've been using it quite happily for some time. The only problem I've 
run into is trying to send email from the read-only account, but 
blanking out the SMTP stuff in the config made it much happier. And yes, 
downloading the largest of the mailboxes took some time, but as you 
said, storage is cheap. :-) Do use the subscribe feature to only get 
those mailboxes you want.
