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.

       UP-ImapProxy 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 ImapProxy caches server connections.

       ImapProxy 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.  ImapProxy 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,  ImapProxy  will  determine if there is a cached connection available and
       reuse it if possible.

FILES

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

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