This is an interesting suggestion.  I run dovecot on a separate
machine and could easily set it up here.  The reason I don't use imap
myself is that I use names like "philosophy" "debian" "debian.amd" for
my mailbox names, which don't fit the imap standard (I think the files
all begin with "." and use "." to separate mailboxes, or something
like that).  If I renamed my mailboxes, then in mutt it would be
slightly more tedious to change mailboxes (typing a "." in front of
all of them).  But this may be the way to go.

I'm also going to check out Balsa, evolution, and kmail.
