I also have the same setup, although my "remote" IMAP is dovecot while
the "local" is courier. I use IMAP-IMAP sync (it's been some time so I
forget why I originally did
it that way, perhaps for no reason) and it works quite well but it is
dog slow. Based on your experience, perhaps I should have a look at
configuring to directly manipulate the Maildir.
