Yes, a progress meter would be nice. Imagine you have 100 emails,
after travel, or even 5000 emails. At least I would know how much is
left or what happened during the network connection. Connection get
broken. Imagine the frustration, waiting for minutes, half an hour,
just to realize too late that connection was broken.

By the way, if I stop IMAP connection on server, movemail is to
exit. But if the network connection breaks, for example, there is no
mobile network available, movemail is not exiting. Maybe you should
have detection when there is no connection?
