NAME

       imapproxyd - IMAP proxy daemon

SYNOPSIS

       imapproxyd [ -f <config file name> ] [ -p <pidfile name> ]

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page documents briefly the imapproxyd command.  This manual page was written
       for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

       IMAP Proxy proxies IMAP transactions between an  IMAP  client  and  an  IMAP  server.  The
       general  idea is that the client should never know that it is not talking to the real IMAP
       server, but IMAP Proxy caches server connections.

       IMAP Proxy was written to compensate for webmail clients  that  are  unable   to  maintain
       persistent  connections  to an IMAP server. Most webmail clients need to log in to an IMAP
       server for nearly every single transaction; This behaviour can  cause  tragic  performance
       problems on the IMAP server.  IMAP Proxy tries to deal with this problem by leaving server
       connections open for a short time after a webmail client logs out. When the webmail client
       connects  again,  IMAP  Proxy will determine if there is a cached connection available and
       reuse it if possible.

FILES

       By default, IMAP Proxy reads /etc/imapproxy.conf on startup.  This can be changed by using
       the -f option

       Unless  foreground_mode  has been enabled, IMAP Proxy will write its PID to to a PID-file.
       It defaults to /run/imapproxy.pid, but can be overridden with the -p option
