"You could also build a cronjob to index users' mailboxes once in a while
(by selecting each mailbox and issuing a SEARCH TEXT xyzzyx command)."

Has anyone written a script to perform the above?  If not, how would I do
this?  Would I write a shell script to telnet to the IMAP port and then
issue the commands?  Can this be done with a bash script?  Or would I need
something more serious like a perl script?
