        mailagent, like procmail, is not a MUA. It is a mail
 filter -- just like procmail. Neither one of them does IMAP. It fits
 in between the maildrop and the MUA -- so, if you use fetchmail, then
 mailagent steps in and handles mail sent in by fetchmail. 

        Alternately, I also use fetchmail remotely to deliver to
 MAILDIR folders on my IMAP server box -- and my IMAP server serves
 mail from MAILDIR folders.

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one
by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.- Edmund
