I'm thinking the same way.

rn I'm running fetchmail & Spambouncer on my OSX box and it works a treat,
but I want
to extend that to
a) Cover all the accounts in my domain, not all of which are used by me
(some are used by
   family members)
b) Be able to access the spam-cleansed mail from any machine on my home

IMAP sounds the way to go... all I've got to do is work out how to get the
mail arriving in
/var/mail/user/ to appear in an IMAP account.

One more thing on the ttdl.
