Yeah I saw those mails...
Might send Maarten a mail directly... maybe he remembers...
I read a little of the imap rfc and as such it does support a lot of things, I'm
sure we can list mailboxes, cause otherwise there is no point in using imap...
servers generally support pop before imap... and imap's main differenciating
feature is mailboxes (any maybe an encrypted password...)
thanks anyhow, I think this is a case for sending a mail to feedback...
still if anyone has an anwser... I'm listening... I'd basically like to create
a mailer which replaces outlook/exchange client for all of us who must endure an
exchange server as a user... at least for the mailing...
btw, so far, all my tests where flawless on reading mails through imap. I just
find the html conversion thing a bit strange... I'm not sure if that's how
exchange always sends mails to its clients.
maybe I could see if I might add a few more commands to the imap protocol...
given time and further outlook frustrations... I'm secretly thinking of using
cerebrus with imap to have better mail filtering cause I'm getting a slew of
spam at work...
but since my time is sparse during the summer... I don't know when/if that is
