Jao, Byung-Hee and Eric,

Thanks for your ansers. I will have to investigate dovecot.

Since I have several IMAP accounts, some of which on the same server, I
have to figure out how to configure dovecot to do that.

Actually, offlineimap is great for that. Maybe I can try to configure it
to store the local copy as IMAP instead of maildir, which may be
analogous to the dovecot solution which has been suggested here.

Thanks for the hints!
