I STRONGLY advise you to hide mnesia/dets in module.
Someone will require to use postgresql user storage, other one will
need /etc/passwd storage.

mnesia is the most badly administrable choice, because there are no
command line tools to look inside mnesia file
and I can hardly imaging clustering abilities for mail server =)
