I want to do this (file access through Tramp to an IMAP server) but
unfortunately haven't had the time.  I got a file to open by name, but
didn't do the necessary work to integrate it with Tramp.  It's on my
TODO list.

Meanwhile, you can just use the Tramp syntax for the file name:


and see if it works.  It should be OK, Gnus won't care that it's a
remote file.
