With millions of subscribers all over the Eastern seaboard they would
likely just run some package to detect "suspicious" users of their
systems .. and I would rather not my name/account popped up on some
report or other.

Yes, but then where the OP is concerned, I think he needs to have his
imap server pull mail from a bunch of other accounts for this to work.
So he'd need a sufficient control over his hosted imap server to run
some fetchmail/getmail process periodically, right?
Does fastmail.fm offer a plan that lets you do that?
