I use DavMail to use MailMate with the Exchange of my work. This works 
very good. And in contrast to Exchange-IMAP this way I can use Tagging 
as DavMail translates between Exchange categories ans IMAP keywords.

Sometimes it is (much) better to use a tool like DavMail than to work 
you don't like. :)

I know this is a little different than a JMAP-IMAP-Proxy. But nothing 
gets better if you stick to the same thing forever. We all know, that 
IMAP has problems. Either "we" do the step to a protocol like JMAP or 
someone else will create facts. Has there been a greater chance of 
switching to a non-proprietary mail protocol?

I'd be willing to take the step – ok, maybe it's easy to say as an end 
user. :)

With kind regards
