Let's not forget IMAP itself is protocol and should be implement at both 
sides, so server side too and his extensions. While HTTP protocol 
doesn't change recently, only layout XML/HTML/XHTML/CSS/etc changes and 
bring features.

In real life scenario TB just missing few IMAP extensions(I keep up to 
date Mozilla wiki page for that). Not what I'm against implement every 
possible extension :).

And if user decide to open attachment nothing you can do about, its just 
single and basic vector for attack, it will be always there.
