NAME

       imapd - IMAP server process

SYNOPSIS

       imapd [ -C config-file ] [ -U uses ] [ -T timeout ] [ -D ]
             [ -s ] [ -p ssf ]

DESCRIPTION

       Imapd  is  an  IMAP4rev1  server.   It accepts commands on its standard
       input and responds on its standard  output.   It  MUST  be  invoked  by
       cyrmaster(8)  with  those  descriptors  attached  to  a  remote  client
       connection.

       Imapd reads its configuration options out  of  the  imapd.conf(5)  file
       unless specified otherwise by -C.

       If  the  file  msg/shutdown is created under the directory specified in
       the configdirectory configuration option, then imapd will shut down the
       connection,  sending the first line contained in the file to the client
       as the reason.  New connections are denied.

       If the file msg/motd is created under the directory  specified  in  the
       configdirectory  configuration  option,  then imapd will send the first
       line contained in the file to clients upon connect as an ALERT  message
       which  IMAP-compliant  clients  are  required  to display.  This option
       serves to annoy users mostly.  Unfortunately clients  tend  to  connect
       far  more  frequently  than  is  apparent,  causing  each connection to
       generate a seperate server ALERT for each connection.  Many clients  do
       not display these properly, if they do anything with them at all.

       If  the  directory log/user exists under the directory specified in the
       configdirectory configuration option, then imapd will  create  protocol
       telemetry logs for sessions authenticating as user.  The telemetry logs
       will be stored in the log/user directory with a filename of  the  imapd
       process-id.

OPTIONS

       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -U uses
              The  maximum number of times that the process should be used for
              new connections before shutting down.  The default is 250.

       -T timeout
              The number of seconds that the  process  will  wait  for  a  new
              connection  before shutting down.  Note that a value of 0 (zero)
              will disable the timeout.  The default is 60.

       -D     Run external debugger specified in debug_command.

       -s     Serve IMAP over SSL (imaps).  All data  to  and  from  imapd  is
              encrypted using the Secure Sockets Layer.

       -p ssf Tell  imapd  that  an  external  layer exists.  An SSF (security
              strength factor)  of  1  means  an  integrity  protection  layer
              exists.  Any higher SSF implies some form of privacy protection.
