A google for "apache 2.0 bandwidth" turned up
http://www.topology.org/src/bwshare/README.html as the first hit.

You also want to spend sometime understanding apache's server settings
and performance tuning (there is lots of stuff on this at the apache
site), and possibly the IMAP server's as well.  If you need tighter
controls still, I'd look into traffic shaping tools at the firewall

I think it would be overkill for webmail, but another long term option
is splitting the site into separate servers, so images and static
content are served from one server while the app resides on another
server which more horsepower behind it.  This will also allow separate
traffic controls to dynamic and static content, so image requests don't
get queue behind application processing.
