I'm sure it's not *needed*, since fetchmail/postfix/spamassassin/
maildrop doesn't even mention IMAP... :)

The Courier people do an excellent job of manipulating Maildirs.
And since IMAP, *is* a standard Access Protocol, and I'm a Linux
kinda guy, I use an open standard method of accessing mail!

Gosh, I feel so morally superior.

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
