Interesting. And it wouldn't have to be read-only -- you
could use imap to change queues. And a "reply" could
be a real email reply, that in fact appended to the ticket.
(Wouldn't be too hard to insert some sort of email header
that provided credentials that proved the sender got it
from imap, and therefore could resolve, delete, assign, etc.
Not that I have any time to throw at this, but were you
looking for a pure-perl imap server? Or a C library where you
could embed a perl interpreter for handling a "mailbox driver"?
Or would you do this similarly to the CLI, where the imap
server would make web calls?
