[REBOL] Re: IMAP mailbox navigation?

From: gchiu:compkarori at: 19-Feb-2003 8:06

Holger mentioned this before: There is a difference between the IMAP protocol itself (RFC 2060) and the imap:// URL scheme (RFC 2192). At this time REBOL only supports the imap:// URL scheme, which has a subset of the full IMAP protocol functionality. It handles mailbox lists, message lists, retrieving and deleting of messages, and message searches, i.e. it is API-compatible to pop://, with added support for multiple mailboxes and searches. Move/copy/rename and other administrative IMAP functions are not specified in RFC 2192 and not supported by REBOL's imap:// scheme at this time. As far as I can tell, to change to another mailbox, you have to log in again to the different mailbox. Scott and I posted the fix to the Imap scheme to allow this to AltME bugfixes channel. Previously, if you tried this, you would get an error as rebol would attempt to open the incorrect mailbox. --Graham
