imap User = does not need domain at the end, email user ID works just fine (testing with Zimbra)
inbox = folder in the imap account where ADempiere will poll for new requests (This seems to work only with top level folders - iow at the same level as the inbox)
Request Folder = folder in which the processed requests will be moved on the request is grabbed
Error Folder = ?? Haven't seem anything go in there yet

Misc Observations:

- The request document number does not follow what is configured in the system; the number appears random - perhaps some email ID / Header information?
- Subject of the email gets pasted into Request summary, with the from address
- Body of the email gets pasted into results
- There is a patch (perhaps in trunk now - Nov 2010) that will add any email attachments as attachments to the request
