I think you could even go one simpler and ask (a) if it's a google
apps account and (b) if so, what is the domain name.

There are log messages to the effect of "Downloading headers for
message ID 21".  What I was suggesting was that if those IDs are
stable, we could cache the headers locally so that we didn't have to
download them again.  I don't know anything about xemail-net, so I
don't know if that is a possibility.
