There is a companion protocol to IMAP, developed at Carnegie Mellon University. It is called the "Application Configuration Access Protocol", or ACAP, and provides the same location independent access to configuration files, address books, bookmark lists, etc, that IMAP offers for mailboxes.
You probably want to have a WebMail interface available.
I need to break the page up into a lot of smaller pieces and I'm looking for wiki-blog software to use - that's how I stumbled on your site and this nice looking wiki-blog system you're using! -NancyMcGough
Code to delete huge number of messages from inbox
Could probably find some sort of file-hacking thing, but wary of that.
Brainstorm - write some Python code to identify the troublesome messages and purge them
'search' returns a 'message_set'
- http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3501.html section 6.4.4 describes the logic/syntax of searches
'store' command seems to set flags for a message_set
- set to '\Deleted' ?
'CLOSE' expunges the deleted records
'UID' approach needed?
