What a pity, do you know if this is outside the IMAP specs?

I'm doing all my filtering via procmail on the server but would want to
pull my inbox every few minutes while leaving mailing lists (esp. LKML)
and others at 1-2h checking times otherwise a new mail icon is really
interrupting my work flow. Right now I'm using a second mail account on
the same server, but it's not yet working nicely.

But thanks a lot for the answer
