The new JSON and REST interface gets you close, but no banana.  You can get the mailbox size in MB, but not the unread item count.  Where's that enhancement page?  ;-)

Sort of off topic but we are wanting to move some imap functionality off
our one of our GWIA's.  On our Linux registers, they run webmail only. 
Since there is no notify, we are running an imap-based message counter
that duplicates the function of notify.  It talks to our GWIA.
We would like to move that functionality to off the GWIA to a Linux box
running postfix.  I know that postfix supports imap but I was wondering
if anyone had ever tried using it.  I've set up smtp mail on postfix but
never imap.  We don't necessarily want to download messages via imap,
just get a message count.  So I'm thinking that we would configure imap
on the postfix box to point to our primary domain but would it pull a
message count in this configuration?
