Well, I hadn't really expected to find anyone on the list who is
willing to be so helpful, but since you are . . . :)

Basically, your understanding of my description is correct.  Of
course, my own first thought when I started thinking about this was
precisely what you just suggested.  The problem with that is that I am
with one of the big commercial ISPs (Comcast), and I don't have a
static IP address, so I can't point to my router from any arbitrary
machine on the internet.  I do believe that I can do some kind of
dynamic DNS with my router.  Then I can probably pass incoming
connections to port (whatever for imap) through to my home machine.
At some point, it just seems that the "right" solution is too much
hassle, so I was just looking for a lower energy solution.

I could completely believe that the solution I came up with might have
some fatal flaw, but I thought I would give it a shot first . . .
