[Dovecot] [OT] Apple Mail.app access to localhost imap when no

Sorry for the offtopic subject, but I tried asking this on some Apple
mailing lists and could not find an answer there, and as it's related
to imap (provided by dovecot), someone might know something about this.
The problem is the following: I have a local IMAP server provided by
dovecot, so that I can store my mail in maildir format, and read it
both using mutt and Apple Mail.app. Mail.app is configured to access
localhost:143 to access mail. However, I discovered that when there is
no network connection (no ethernet cable plugged in and no wifi
network), Mail.app is saying that it's working in disconnected mode and
refuses to access the imap server.
Would someone have a suggestion as to what to do to allow connected
access to localhost when no network is present? I'm very new to OS X (I
come from Linux).
Thanks a lot,
