imapd blues

It's just me. Currently I'm using over 500Megs of disk space on my 
commercial mail server
and it just grows and grows and I keep getting over quota charge 
penalties. I want to setup
another imap server on my own pc so that I can use it as a mail backup. 
Thus I want to be
able to drag and drop mail items in thunderbird from my main mail area 
to local storage.

Cheers. Steve.
