- not all mail providers do IMAP.
- not all mail providers doing IMAP guarantee unlimited storage or
lifelong mail availability.
- some users have accumulated mail providers and want to centralize
everything in a trusted server
That's what I do with Cyrus: fetching mail from various POP3 sources,
and having all where we can access it, from several IMAP clients.
That you may find this solution not optimal isn't the question (nor
really my problem, in fact), I just wanted my server to rest a bit when
unused (spinning off the drives array has measurable power gains), so I
wanted to be able to know when Cyrus has connected users.
