What's  wrong with  the  way nmh  does it  today?  Maildir is  certainly
superior for  some of the reasons  detailed below, but nmh's  Mail store
isn't very far off:


some of us have converted to Maildir, but we miss MH's CLI capability.

Also, I'm confused why Maildir and  IMAP are both alternate mail stores.
Email is stored  on server in a  Maildir and accessed via  IMAP. I don't
see them as mutually exclusive.

in IMAP, Maildir is an implementation detail. some IMAP servers use SQL, BDB, Berkely Mail, or even MMDF format for mail stores. i happen to be using a Maildir store on Dovecot2, but there are other options.
