Examples include different clients working on behalf of the same user, and multiple users accessing shared mailboxes. It is also possible to attach annotations to inap parts of a message, so that, for example, they could be marked as seen, or important, or a comment added. This specification defines the generic URI syntax and a process for resolving URI references that might be in relative form, along with guidelines and security considerations for the use of URIs on the Internet.
Much of this complexity e. Need to fix the sort as well [ http: Less necessary with higher resources available today. It will be less human-typing-friendly, but more machine friendly.
Heirarchy separator will either be forced or impa exist tree data structure on the wire. This draft was based upon the following earlier specifications: Has some best-practices how well-behaving IMAP servers should behave.
IMAP4 provides a mechanism for a client to ask the server to search for messages meeting a variety of criteria. Exactly what we’re planning here – everything you can do with Lemonade should be supported – not necessarily in the same way.
Specifies a method to synchronise a client with a server after some time for the client being offline. The current version is defined by RFC Retrieved 26 November Also fuzzy searching and partial response is an interesting area.
Many IMAP4 extensions to the base protocol have been proposed and are in common use. May iimap to consider individual folders vs “entire user” in the context of folder-level ACLs. It is possible to store data on a per-mailbox basis or on the server as a whole. Notification of mail arrival is done through in-band signalingwhich contributes to the complexity of client-side IMAP protocol handling somewhat.
Expand scope to include other objects annotations, keywords, num-folders, etc consistently. Folder listing is one of the major pain points for client authors.

The Conditional Store facility rf a protected update mechanism for message state information that can detect and resolve conflicts between multiple writing mail clients.
Current group scheduling and Personal Information Management PIM products are being extended for use across the Internet, today, in proprietary ways. Except making LIST extensible and giving tiny bandwidth improvements and tiny server performance improvements.
Avoid having such a complex ABNF – use a structured substrate of some sort. Sending mail via an IMAP connection”. E-mail clients using IMAP generally leave messages on the server until the user explicitly deletes them. See for example RFC section 5. Would rffc to make this more general – sort by a somewhat arbitrary function on the message. Support Sieve – possibly even sieve fragments as “run this filter on this mailbox”. Was there really 3051 point?

Ideally composible actions – first characters of decoded value of part “1. Access to remote mailboxes not fundamentally different from local access.
This mechanism avoids requiring clients to download every message in the mailbox in order to perform these searches. The best approach for ‘push’ e-mail”. An example of such an application is use of an IMAP mailbox as a message queue with multiple dequeueing clients.
Moreover, single parts of emails may be annotated, e. In contrast, the IMAP protocol specifically allows simultaneous access by multiple clients and provides mechanisms for clients to detect changes made to the mailbox by other, concurrently connected, clients. The Internet Message Access Protocol is an Application Layer Internet protocol that allows an e-mail client to access e-mail on a remote mail server.
