What's driving it at this point is IMAP access. Sure, I could expose the 
IMAP-over-SSL port to the Internet, but somehow that sounds even more 
scary than using a second-rate VPN server. I am using Cyrus IMAPd, but 
regardless, I just have a bad feeling about allowing everyone and their 
dog to poke directly at the software holding all my emails.
