Unfortunately, this would eliminate the major advantage of IMAP.  I read
my mail from two different locations (home and work) and up to 5 different
computers.  Storing the mail locally really isn't an option, although I
suppose I could make *copies* of it instead of moving it from the mailserver
to a local machine.

Hmm.. so far mutt has two votes.  I'll try it when I get home from work
