The basic problem is that you cannot implement the IMAP protocol using 
the functionality provided by a POP server.  Conceivably, you could have 
a proxy that did what you wanted and provided a very restricted subset 
of IMAP commands, but you would likely find clients would not work with it.

You should just bite the bullet and convert them at once, offline.
