Anyone have an example of how to move email from one folder to another on an IMAP server? -- Graham Chiu

Hmm. 'Insert can not be used on an IMAP port. So, how does one issue commands to an IMAP server? ( Apart from 'remove, 'first, 'last etc ) -- Graham Chiu

I don't know the details about this port. But I know IMAP4/POP3 are protocols used to RECEIVE email. If you wish to move email, I think you should use IMAP4 to read email, and use SMTP protocol to send it to another email adress. bye! --Alessandro--

Hi Alessandro, This is from the RFC for IMAP4 ( http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2060.html ) IMAP4rev1 includes operations for creating, deleting, and renaming mailboxes; checking for new messages; permanently removing messages; setting and clearing flags; [RFC-822] and [MIME-IMB] parsing;searching; and selective fetching of message attributes, texts, and portions thereof. I think MOVE should be COPY followed by REMOVE. However, looking at the current IMAP handler, COPY ( as in copying a message from one mailbox to another ) is not supported. -- Graham Chiu

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. -- Holger Kruse [kruse--nordicglobal--com]

I guess this will happen though eventually? -- Graham Chiu
