IMAP servers don't accept messages for forwarding or delivery. However,
they do accept messages to be placed in their folders. For example, I
use Netscape and Cyrus IMAP. When I send out an email, Netscape places a
copy of the email in a Cyrus IMAP "sent mail" folder.

You could expose the ZODB object tree as IMAP folders and messages. Then
you would be able to view objects, perhaps with each view of an object
represented as part of a multi-part MIME message. You'd be able to
upload new objects by writing them as emails.

I reckon this is quite feasible, and possibly even useful :-)
