I would much prefer this (no local cache at all) rather than local
mailbox support. Particularly if this means that message parts and
attachments wouldn't be downloaded at all until I asked for them.
That's one of the real advantages of IMAP, you can look at a message
without downloading the attachments, HTML parts, etc. Caching
everything sort of defeats that, especially if you use more than one
machine to view EMail.
