If you are using cyrus-imapd you can set permissions on individual users
mailbox's allowing "delegated" individuals to have access to another
persons account. This can be limited to just read access, write access,
and several other things depending on your needs.

This is probably a lot easier then messing around with
procmail/fetchmail and other solutions.
