But, if I understand Kolab client and server I have to use dimap exclusively?
Or can I get all the groupware features with only using standard-imap on the 
client side? The high CPU load for syncing is a problem in a real world 
company environment and lowers the desktop experience. Dropping dimap when 
using a permanent server connection would be nice or a faster method to check 
if a complete syncing-process is really necessary is need. When using server 
side filtering, folder sync options do not really help, cause when I manage 
my eMails in project folders I have to check (sync) all of them regularly.
