I used IMAP for about 6 months. I got really tired of waiting... and waiting...
I went back to POP. I now split my mail at the server, I save a copy of every mail message to an individual text file. Every 3-4 months I have around 600 megs of mail and I burn a CD (with a sherlock index).
I then clear out my email program's database. I just did this yesterday, but instead of clearing emailer's database - I decided to try MailSmith.
As for multiple machines. I used 3 of them, I just set POP to leave the mail on the server for x days and eventually all three machines have all my mail.
There are responses to this message:
