IMAP is a protocol, not a storage. Yes indeed there could be a mod_imap
to listen on port 143, but there could just as well be a seperate
imap-jabber translator, server independent/agnostic. How the storage
would be realized I don't know, currently the philosophy isto keep
spoolfiles small and tiny, right?
