There's also IMAP proxy as part of Horde project (available only from 
CVS).  http://www.horde.org/.

Both have pros and cons.  Perdition does PO3, IMAP4, supports TLS and 
can proxy connections to different servers based on username.

Horde IMAP proxy does only IMAP4, no TLS (you can emulate it using 
stunnel), however it can cache connections, making it very suitable for 
use with webmail applications (it will reduce load on the real IMAP 
server significantly, since connection between proxy and real IMAP 
server is preserved between page loads).

See Ya' later, alligator!
