  If you can't ssh normally into purple then the above will not work.

  It's not as good as ssl based imap, or a tunnel directly to purple.
It's better than nothing:
  Find the host that is network-map-wise "closest" to purple as you
can get, which you can ssh into.  Then do something like this:

  ssh -L 12345:purple.ucdavis.edu:143 some_other.ucdavis.edu

  In effect what you are doing is creating a secure tunnel from the
machine you run ssh on to the some_other host, then channeling the
traffic clear channel from some_other to purple.  If you are running
this from a DSL or Cable Modem home line and some_other is inside 
the UCD network, it is likely to be more secure...
