I suspect there is a sordid history here but Google is not revealing it. I want to access my IMAP server to process my mail and according to the documentation for Emacs movemail, it only handles POP whereas Gnu Mailutils has a version of movemail that does handle IMAP. Now why would we not want to provide IMAP access for Rmail out of the box? I certainly do. Is there some history here I should be aware of? I'm inclined to figure out what is necessary to add to Emacs movemail so that it can fetch IMAP mail. I do realize that adding IMAP support to Rmail is more complex than the initial fetch, but it certainly is a good place to start. No?
