       IMAPd - Internet Message Access Protocol server




       imapd  is  a  server  which  supports  the IMAP4rev1 remote mail access
       protocol as documented in RFC-3501.  imapd is invoked by  the  internet
       server  (see  inetd(8)),  normally  for requests to connect to the IMAP
       port  as  indicated  by  the  /etc/services  file  (see   services(5)).
       Normally, this is port 143 for plaintext IMAP and 993 for SSL IMAP.

       This  daemons contains CRAM-MD5 support.  See the md5.txt documentation
       file for additional information.

       imapd can also be accessed via rsh(1) by many Unix-based  clients.   To
       do  this,  the  imapd binary must have a link to /usr/sbin/rimapd since
       this is where this software expects it to be located.
