This is important. I was set to switch from google apps till I realised there was no imap. Encrypted emails are fine, if you need it. I am mainly interested with a company that isn't logging and making money from my emails. I would gladly pay that small fee every year IF I could use imap and smtp with my own clients and apps. Just all you need to do is detect encrypted emails and just provide a web link if you want to interact with those emails. All other emails can arrive and send over normal secure imap/smtp connection. Please implement this most basic and crucial functionality.
