Sorry, your email was being held as spam by our proxmox mail gateway, 
just found it today.

As an anecdote, I recently needed a sort of imap email checker for the 
tech support team here, that would reside in the toolbar and show them 
new support request emails (a single email account) and mark them "read" 
for each member that "reads" them, while other members still see them as 
"unread". It only needed to get/show the sender and subject, the user 
would read them in a proper client. I couldn't find anything similar out 
there and so I thought of Gambas for making this, but since it was imap, 
finally started the project on java (unfortunately time constraints have 
hit me and haven't gotten very far yet).
