What you could be trying is to use Disconnected IMAP instead of normal one.
This is a two way sync of a local cache and the IMAP server, meaning you can

I am using this with several IMAP accounts and have never seen a problem with 
stability. Additionally it allows KMail to apply local filters on "incoming"
