This is the most sore point with SuSE 9.0 for me.  uw-imap has the above 
limitation.  Squirrelmail won't work with it.  My wife's Outlook won't work 
with it.  Evolution won't work with it.  The only clients I can get working 
with it are KMail, pine, and Netscape Mail under Windows for my wife (which 
she hates).  

I was never able to get courier or cyrus working with it either.  There were 
some other biggies, but the fact that I could not get an IMAP server working 
(and few would classify me as a newbie) frustrates my wife and myself to this
