NAME

       IMAPd - Internet Message Access Protocol server

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/sbin/imapd

DESCRIPTION

       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.
