Yes, IMAP can be used to create new messages within a folder as well as to manipulate existing messages.

Manipulate as in move around, or edit message bodies too? –  Ivan Jul 18 '10 at 18:22
    
As in move around. Editing messages isn't part of the IMAP spec per se, although it can be simulated via deletion and creation. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 18 '10 at 18:41
