Thank you for answering.

No you don't miss anything, I really don't now, but I've had some bad 
experience when switching from established smtp to imap, and mails where 

I want my mail boxes to be on 1 place and not deleted when loaded and 
synchronised, additionally where I can easily back up.

I was thinking to use fetchmail or similar, I think it can collect 
several smtp account to one user, but I haven't set that up before and 
also I think it collects everything in to one inbox, correct me if I am 

It would be very interesting to her what others do when they have 
multiply smtp accounts and multiple access are needed.
