Hmm, that is consistent with what I have going on. I'm using Mail.app
(along with other IMAP clients) on OS X, and as I said, I only recall
seeing this sort of stuff ports 143 and 993.
If nobody has some insight into this, I know what I should do next. I
should set up ethereal or something like that to capture out-going IMAP
packets and try to see what correlates with what I have on the firewall
logs. Of course, whether I actually get around to doing what I should do
next is another question.
