I'm not a huge fan of IMAP and it's looking pretty baroque by now, and POP is

But *-over-HTTPS is almost certainly going to be worse than any of the above.
Nobody likes current IMAP, but IMAP v5 never took off.

Also the Courier extension for sending email over IMAP also didn't gain much 

I still believe that a coordinated push to get a new version of IMAP would beat 
stuff such as JMAP.
