IMAP library, or support via tsNet?

Is there anything in the way of an IMAP library around?

My needs are relatively simple: I want to connect to an iMAP server, 
recursively list folders and fetch the size of each (if necessary by fetching 
the size of each message)

e.g. in JavaScript with this library
I'd be using
	listMessages(... ['RFC822.SIZE'])

Is there a library that would support this kind of access?

Does tsNet provide anything above the basic network primitives to support 
this?  Some time I ago there was a tantalising hint on this list:

Did that ever come to fruition?

Many thanks,
