I swore by imap (and imaps) for years -- until I became rich enough to

Interesting - I went the other way. I treat laptops as ephemeral
machines (had one stolen from the office so far), so never put valuable
stuff only on the laptop itself. Mail lives on a permanently located
machine with a good backup regime (the laptop also has a good - in fact
paranoid - backup regime), and I imap from there. However I don't in
general spend time working away from connectivity so that works for me.
If I did work away from the net I would probably use isync -
http://isync.sourceforge.net/ - and then make further decisions as to
whether to use the maildir directly or as a base for courier imap.
