You could also seperate the cache from the imap daemon similar to how livejournal.com uses a seperate caching service to limit the overhead on the mysql servers for large mail deployments. Its similar in the sense people want the most recent journal entries just like they want their new messages.
The other advantage to a mail server implemented as a database is that one could add groupwise type functionality as pluggable modules that tied in with the data store. Its overkill, but could be rather neat.
