Speaking of UW-IMAP hacks, you might be interested in these:


I've continued to use UW-IMAP for all these years because I've
become comfortable with it. That's a big plus when you're
administering a huge server farm. But today, I've decided that
the hack-and-dash routines required to keep UW-IMAP up to snuff
have outlived their usefulness and have become more of a liability
than an asset. So I'm in search of a replacement. I need
something that is *intended* to be configurable and thereby
easily lends itself to adjustment. Visually parsing the source
(as is required to configure so much of UW-IMAP) just doesn't
get it. The lack of doc's doesn't help either. I kept hoping
that that scenerio would change. But I'm done waiting. :)

Thanks for your input.
