Hello. I would wish to have a tool that would do this kind of thing:

have a good ovewview of server-client conversation;
I don't know what such kind of tool is usually called and thus
difficult to do an effective google search. I tried a few tools in
ports/net but none of them seems to be working in this way... (admit
that I didn't look into pkg-descr of every package)
This sounds like a job for net/wireshark (formerly known as ethereal).
It won't forward as you describe, but will sit and monitor what goes
over the wire. You can have it only look at traffic to/from certain IP
addresses, and/or on certain ports; it's very flexible. You could run it
on any machine that the IMAP traffic passes through - your local
desktop, the server, any machine (gateway?) in between.
