This was a tricky one ;-)

I think I now have a fully working local setup (I still need to test 
with Mail.app when I get to work). The next step will be to work on IMAP 
synchronization. By the way, is someone here using isync.sf.net or 
offlineIMAP with dovecot?

Thanks again for the quick response and the great support.
