Hi Yutaka, thanks for the response. You are right, the IMAP server can
authenticate, however I'm trying to restrict the service at the proxy
level, so that not everyone who can access it internally can also access
it from the outside. A second gateway if you will, that restricts access
to only a select few individuals.

I've looked at the AUTH and AUTHORIZER arguments, but they only work with
specific protocols, and they don't appear to support IMAP. Is there any
other way I could add another level of authentication to IMAP through the
delegate server?
