*sigh* yes, I know about that. I *did* that. But I don't want to use
 imap as though it's pop, I want to use imap as though it's imap, In
 other words, if I'm reading mail on a remote server, I want the ability
 to read the headers and *not* download the message if I don't want to
 read it. Also, I was reading mail on multiple machines, and VM's
 support for that is a bit annoying.
Not to mention that I found VM's folder support to be truly
 irritating, since I had to go check each folder to see if there were
 any unread messages in them. 

It's just my own problem. I did say almost noone else'd be interested. I
just thought I'd post what I'd been doing in case anyone actually was.
