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.
