You can use the c-client library for this; it's what the pine email
client uses.  

http://www.washington.edu/imap/documentation/internal.txt.html lists
all the functions available, and I believe there are sample programs in
the imap-uw source package that demonstrate how to read and write
messages to mailboxes.
