Information on RFC ยป RFC Editor

Specifies a method to synchronise a client with a server after some time for the client being offline. Specify shared vs private “same keyword”, e. Common use case is “add a rule to filter messages matching X into a folder, and also apply that to the messages in INBOX now so existing ones get copied”.

System flags indicate state information such as whether a message has been read. Access to remote mailboxes not fundamentally different from local access. The hard bit will be extra things like metadata, condstore, which it doesn’t seem to consider – so it’s incomplete.

This page was rf edited on 27 Decemberrtc Archived from the original on IMAP keywords should not be confused with proprietary labels of web-based e-mail services which are sometimes translated into IMAP folders by the corresponding proprietary servers.

An IMAP server typically listens inap port number But this one has a problem, it doesn’t let tfc sort across folders, which makes it only half the solution. This document is a revision of RFC Expand scope considerably – IDLE is insufficient for many users, because it only monitors one mailbox.


Incoming e-mail messages are sent to an e-mail server that stores messages in the recipient’s e-mail box. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Imqp not even an attempt to include address book, calendaring, etc in this list yet! An example of such an application is use of an IMAP mailbox as a message queue with multiple dequeueing clients. Fix insufficient information being returned from commands to synchronise state. This memo has been defined to provide the definition of a common format for openly exchanging calendaring and scheduling information across the Internet.

Usually all Internet e-mail is transmitted in MIME format, allowing messages to have a tree structure where the leaf nodes are any of a variety of single part content types and the non-leaf nodes are any of a rvc of multipart types. These flags are stored on the server, so different clients accessing the same mailbox at different times can detect state changes made by other clients.

May need to consider individual folders vs “entire user” in the context of folder-level ACLs. The IMAP specification has been criticised for being insufficiently strict and allowing behaviours that effectively negate its usefulness.

Also fuzzy searching and partial response is an interesting area. Make it easy to not only get status data, but to get a list of which folders have changed since last request.

commands – GoDoc

There are a few cases covering list andling – it’s a lot more complex than the small amount of actual data involved justifies. However, the specification also allows these UIDs to be invalidated with no restrictions, practically defeating their purpose. Definitely, need to keep dfc – language negotiation needs to be part of the initial connection.


Examples include different clients working on behalf of the same user, and multiple users accessing shared mailboxes. Need to fix the sort as well [ http: This draft was based upon the following earlier specifications: Views Read Edit View history. It will be less human-typing-friendly, but more machine friendly. The best approach for ‘push’ e-mail”. See comment – will be mooted. With the IDLE command, the server can tell the client that a mailbox status has changed.

Less necessary with higher resources available today. The current version is defined by RFC Keywords, which are not 35011 by all IMAP servers, allow messages to be given one or more tags whose meaning is up to the client.

Internet Message Access Protocol

Hosted by Red Hat. Folder ima is one of the major pain points for client authors. Set a baseline of “required supported features” to get a better experience. The IMAP4 protocol allows clients to retrieve any of the individual MIME parts separately and also to retrieve portions of either individual parts or the entire message. IMAP was designed by Mark Crispin in as a remote access mailbox protocol, in contrast to the widely used POP, a protocol for simply retrieving the contents of a mailbox.
