Hi Alfred,

I have implemented the mu_mailbox_get_uidls function, which returns
a list of message numbers with the corresponding UIDLs. It is pretty
effective for pop:// mailboxes, if the remote server supports the
UIDL command. For the rest of mailboxes it degrades to retrieving UIDLs
of each message. The implementation for imap:// mailboxes is coming

The `movemail' utility now has the `--uidl' option, that instructs it
to use UIDLs to avoid downloading the same message twice. Thanks for
the idea!
