I see now but given the fact that I am a little stranger to IMAP and POP3
protocols, I do not think I could be able to implement a general feature
anyway :-). However my implementation could be only a start point.

I have attached the patch now. Please review. I was not aware that we were
in feature freeze period. I think I have missed it? I actually urged to
implement this feature before feature freeze :-) It is actually no big deal
for me since I am using a 7.22.0 based version for production.

With 4th item, I wanted to mean that I really like this feature to be
included in v7.24.0. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks in advance.
