Just a quick nit to pick here - delivering to virtual mailboxes is
the job of the local delivery agent, not Sendmail.  Many people have
written scripts that deliver mail to mySQL databases, etc. to support
virtual mailboxes, that work with Sendmail just fine.

The IMAP server also has nothing whatsoever to do with sendmail, or
any mail transfer agent for that matter.  By definition, it's a 
completely separate server.
