Client Certificate verification for mail

Hi NGINX team, 

I can read here : 

and in this thread : 

that the client certificate verification is not supported by NGINX (and that there is no RFE for it). 

We want to implement client certificate verification for IMAP and POP connection and we plan to rely on NGINX for scalability. 

I think that it is possible to implement client certificate verification in NGINX but I still need to know : 
* if it is a trivial task 
* if I can do it only with addons 
* why it isn't already in NGINX core ? 

I will apreciate if someone can give me directions on that subject. 

Best regards,
