Re: IMAP quirk
I can't help you with imap as I don't use (and have never used) it.
However, this does sound like a 'permissions' problem. Understand again
that I don't _know_ that this is relevent when using imap but you need a
netscape mail directory in your home directory with permissions like:
drwx--S--- 5 <user> <user> 1024 Feb 23 21:12 nsmail
(where "<user>" is your local login name of course)
In this directory all files and directories are chown <user>.<user> and
the ".xyz.summary" files are rw,r,r. The directories are drwx,rs,rx.
In the subdirectories, the subdirectories (if any) and the "summary"
files are the same as above. The actual mail files are rw for owner
only (regardless of where they are located).
Since imap _might_ keep the may file on the remote host when there the
problem could be that there is a write permission problem either with
the file/directories on the remote machine or a machine permission
