Absolutely, it can and should just work... I'm not running uw-imap any more,
but I never had any problems with it when I was.

David, you didn't say if any of your clients were using POP rather than IMAP.
It's probably also a good idea to follow up on Kevin's suggestion and make
sure all your clients are looking in the same place for new mail (the INBOX
folder, I guess, wherever uw-imap puts it).

Are you sure you don't have any clients set to automatically move read mail
out of the INBOX and into some other folder?  That would also explain what
you're seeing.
