I hadn't thought of running an imap server, but this does sound 
appealing for my uses. I wonder if  it would be too "resource" demanding 
to ask from my desktop computer to do both imap as well as my regular 
work on the desktop.

I guess I would then have to have a static IP to be able to access the 
imap server. My Belkin router does support DynDNS.
