I agree with you 100%, Geert.

I don't even understand the desire to perform sieving / filtering at  
the imap level.  From our perspective, that work belongs higher up...  
as close to the MTA as possible.  Here we use MPP (Message Processing  
Platform) http://www.raeinternet.com/  Catches a pipe from Postfix  
via lmtp.  Has done it's job well for years!
