I use Dovecot myself, but I know that the support for UIDPLUS in Dovecot
is relatively recent (2008 I think == wild guess).
Earlier versions of MailMate did work without UIDPLUS, but I got tired
of the growing number of workarounds needed, especially when also
fighting Googles IMAP implementation. MailMate is now very robust and
efficient with the UIDPLUS extension and I would strongly recommend the
use of servers with the UIDPLUS extension if possible.
That said, I am actually looking into supporting non-UIDPLUS servers
right now. I'll let you know when/if it is completed. Anyone else
interested can send me a private email and I'll let you know too –
especially if you are willing to test it.
