  Thanks, I didn't realize that. I guess that what I still don't realize
is whether Sendmail sets up the INBOX or whether IMAP does that. Perhaps
I'm being thick-headed but I would think that IMAP and MTA's would work
together to unite a single directory structure for mail. Please let me
know if this is actually the case and I haven't read enough. I just, for
whatever reason, can't seem to figure this out.
