I would recommend using EXACT[1] for example. IMAP-before-SMTP will not
work as well as POP-before-SMTP, though. The reason is simple: with
POP3, you connect, download the e-mails and de-connect. With IMAP, you
connect and keep connected until you leave your e-mail client (or your
connection explicitely).

I have Debian packages if you need so.
