what IMAP servers have you used? I find that with a good IMAP server I can
get away with _very_ little processing power in the client and get good
performance (I still am using pine, but with a cyrus IMAP server)

there are a bunch of IMAP servers out there that are horrible (and even
more IMAP clients that are really doing POP and storing everything
locally, just using the IMAP protocol)
