From: "Rick Gigger" <>  All email messages have a unique identifier.  It is a long string that ususally contains a domiain name or ip address.  It is unique to all email addresses in the world.  It would be much, much more useful if imap_uid would return that instead.

You might have the wrong idea of what uid is - what do you expect it to be? On pop servers the message uid will very likely just _be_ the message number...

When I call connect to a qmail pop server and call imap_uid all it does is return the message number back to me.  It DOES NOT return the uid.  I have to call imap_header for that and it is very slow.
