POP and IMAP are fundamentally different beasts.  POP servers implement a mail 
drop where mail resides post delivery pending collection by an MUA.  Nothing 
more, nothing less.  IMAP splits mailbox storeage and operations from the 
MUA.  IMAP is not appropriate for ISP usage which is why they use POP as this 
fits their needs perfectly.
