I wouldn't recommend running the imap server on your own computer, although 
it's quite possible.  The mail clients sometimes do weird things in that 
situation.  If you do want to set up imap, on whichever computer, dovecot is 
an excellent server, and there is excellent documentation on their wiki.

You can, of course, use any mail client you wish, once that's set up - and you 
don't have to stick to one if you don't want to.
