i run postfix bound to localhost on my laptop even, and then use
fetchmail to obtain all my mail via pop3/ssl. this way, all my mail is
always local, and i don't need imap.

however, i would like to add compression to this to minimize the
traffic caused on the servers, so i was thinking of rsync. but the
isync package looks quite cool too. can it speak imaps natively? or
just the tls extension?
