I discovered it as well, and have been putting it togather as we speak.
gnu-pop3d is up, and running.  exim seems to be delivering.

Your documentation is clear and extremely helpful.

Actually, I am the only user who appreciates the benefits of IMAP, so I
shall simply not mention it to clients.  These are typically associate
organisations, who need very basic mailing services.  I will take up the
matter of commisioning someone to patch an IMAP demon, and releasing it GPL.
Time my company put mony back into gnu ;-)

Once again, thanks.
