You mean IMAP ? Its been done as they say

The Mutt folks were adding some nice code for dotlocking. One problem with
mailers is that most of them suck codewise. You certainly dont want pine
or nmh to be setgid anything. Mutt is heavily audited but has still had
holes found in it.

Because of this the Mutt people were adding an external dotlocking program
so that anyone could dotlock their own mailbox via the dotlocking tool,
safely and without themselves being setuid/setgid
