The Book of IMAP
Building A Mail Server With Courier and CyruseBook - 2008
The IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) and POP3 (Post Office Protocol) protocols govern the behavior of all modern mail servers and clients. IMAP and POP3 provides a detailed introduction to POP3 and IMAP, including many practical hints for even the most experienced administrator. You'll learn not only how the protocols work but also how to install, set up, and maintain the two most popular open source mail systems, Courier and Cyrus, with coverage of availability, authentication, performance, quotas, and storage. The book's authors have set up hundreds of mail servers and have extensive familiarity with the protocols. They show you how to analyze errors, migrate POP/IMAP servers, manage clusters, and tune file systems. Thoroughly commented references to the POP and IMAP protocols complete the book, making IMAP and POP3 an essential resource for mail administrators. Co-published with Open Source Press.
