Don't know howto nor if it will work, but there is a pam option
for 'allready logged in':

"This is a PAM module which will, given restrictions upon whether
the user to be authenticated is root or logging in on a given
terminal, will allow the user to be authenticated successfully if
the user is currently already logged in on another terminal."

I guess it can be used exclusively for imap sessions??
