Some possible future law in some silly country has nothing to do with
Baltasar's original technical question, which is completely legitimate;
offering POP3 access to all and IMAP only to some.
You could use different passdb's under pop3 and imap, using the allow_nets
extra field: http://wiki.dovecot.org/PasswordDatabase/ExtraFields/AllowNets
You would allow pop3 access to all, imap access to some from any IP and to
others only from the webmail server(s) IP('s).
