It does. We actually just rolled it out, and people have begun using it.
We're still working out a few kinks that are probably related to our
environment, such as the spellchecker and imp not communicating properly
(ispell works fine, and is the latest version; not sure what's up here).

Overall, we've had a lot of positive comments. The biggest complaints have
been related to its speed. There have also been a significant number of
requests for Eudora addressbook import options, which right now has no
straightforward solution (they have to be imported to outlook, then
imported from there to Imp).

The speed issue isn't too surprising. We have it running on four Compaq
tru64 boxes, which are also used for imap, pop, and shell logins for
thousands of users. If you'd like to know more about our environment, let
me know.
