What does "imap storage" mean? Does Asterisk write directly to the
mailboxes or does it connect solely as an imap cliet? Or both?

One other thing: I remember that there is something I disliked about the
mbx format: last time I looked closely it was practically unsupported by
anything other than the tools of the WU distributions.

Looking ay Debian now I see just two packages that seem to be aware of
mbx folders (archmsg and mailsync). I also see that the version of
c-client in Debian is 2002 (!).
