I use UW's IMAP daemon for a fast and easy kick-off. Check Cyrus if
UW's not enough for you.

I suppose, there are more ways to try and break your httpd running
webmail than to try and break imapd. Can't tell you, nevertheless.

That is what IMAP is lovely for. I have a woody server (sounds
familiar?) that receives all my mail, filters and clasifies using
procmail, checks spam, checks viruses, and using any client machine I
have only to connect using IMAP to read mail from my folder hierarchy
in the cleanest way posible from wherever.
