i see. stupid imap servers. changes should be committed instantly.

wash.U imap. im not in love with it, but i havent found a better
alternative. (ok cyrus seems great, but ive had no success whatsoever with
getting it up and running, particularly when it comes to trying to convert
mailboxes into its own funky format).
incidentally my problems seem to be mostly wu-imap's fault, which
apparently doesnt like multiple things being done at the same time to the
same file(s). now im trying to convert my mailboxes to mbx format...
