All of these tasks, AFAIK, can be performed via IMAP.  So I'd image they
are performed the same way for all IMAP servers.

Since you use PHP why not use PHP's Cyrus & IMAP support.

Although it might be better to see if there is a PEAR/PECL module that
wraps/bundles the functionality.


My experience with PHP's "native" IMAP support is that it is quite flaky
and has dreadful [to none] error handling.  But it is PHP after all. :)
