FYI on debian/unstable they do support it out of the box.

In fact there a few recipies here and there but not on the accounts
where the merged mails occured.

Hmmm. That's a possibility. Would be a huge interoperability bug between
to mainstream and widely-used packages.
I suspect a problem with /var/spool/mail 's permissions. In
/usr/share/doc/uw-imapd-ssl/bugs.txt.gz one can read:
. /tmp, /usr/tmp or /var/tmp (if present), and the mail spool directory
must be protected 1777 (world write with sticky bit); otherwise
mailbox locking and updates won't work.
But on Debian systems /var/spool/mail 's mode is drwxrwsr-x
Would it be crazy to have a mail spool directory with 1777 permissions?
