IMAPS is the way out. I know you said IMAP is not allowed but IMAPS
works under SSL so this should not be a security hole.

IMAP(S) can be set to synchronise local (laptop etc.) folders with
remote (mailserver) folders. So when user does off-line work and
deletes mail next time he connects the folders synchronise. You can
set up multiple clients for single user and all clients will
synchronised when ever they connect to server.
