I have some sympathy with that, as I run an Indy 24/7 and it's almost 
the only system here I do run all the time, apart from router and APs. 
And it serves at least one useful purpose, because we have a number of 
mail accounts from different providers, few of which support IMAP (don't 
mention gmail because it isn't).  It's easy to run UW imapd and 
convenient to keep everything in one place.  OK a Raspberry Pi would use 
less power, but is also less fun.
