This feature is discussed (in a positive, it just works, sense) a lot  
online because it has been a feature for a long time with IMP3/4. It  
was quite hard to to find this page and properly confirm that it is  
now depreciated in IMP5. I have added a (rather terse, sorry, I was  
suffering a sense of humour failure) note to the Wiki page about this.

 From the search results seen before I found this page I imagine that  
hosting providers (plesk/cpanel based) will have a strong incentive to  
get this restored since they have been offering IMP as a mail  
aggregator service to their customers. They may well feel that this  
issue is a blocker for IMP5 adoption.

As per the user below I'd also been hoping to use IMP5 to aggregate  
some external mailboxes into my main mail system, and might well have  
stayed with OpenWebmail if I had seen in advance that I would loose  
this functonality. I have worked around it by running getmail as a  
service on my server, but it's harder to configure and maintain than  
if it was a native IMP function.
