I like downloading my emails with POP3 so they aren't on some server, but it only downloads the inbox.

I'd like to move some email functionality onto my phone for while I'm on a trip, and have my POP3-ing laptop download even the sent and deleted folders when I get back.

Anyone know of any good small programs that can do the downloading, like mpop does for the inbox? Can this be achieved using an IMAP client like offlineimap?
