You are right.  There wouldn't be much point in using a separate mail client 
just for Org.  It would be best to stick to whichever mail client you normally 

The current org-vm.el interface, apparently written by Carsten Dominik, only 
works for local folders in VM.  (I don't blame him.  This was probably written 
in 2004, when IMAP wasn't used that much by VM users.)  I have now added 
changes to extend it to POP and IMAP folders.  They will be part of the next 
release of VM (v 8.1.1, due to be released pretty soon).  Or, you can get it 
from Launchpad (bzr get lp:vm/8.1.x).

The IMAP folder names will be in the standard VM format:


If people would prefer shorter folder names, I could do some more work on it.  
But, it probably doesn't matter.  The hyperlinks are rarely seen anyway.
