  Description     : Fast bidirectional synchronization for QRESYNC-capable IMAP servers

InterIMAP performs stateful bi-directional synchronization between two
IMAP4rev1 servers.  Compared to the so-called "full" synchronization
solutions, InterIMAP is both much faster and parsimonious in network

Stateful synchronization is made possible by the QRESYNC extension from
[RFC7162]; for convenience reasons servers must also support LIST-EXTENDED
[RFC5258], LIST-STATUS [RFC5819] and UIDPLUS [RFC4315].

Furthermore, while InterIMAP can work with servers lacking support for
LITERAL+ [RFC2088] and MULTIAPPEND [RFC3502], these extensions greatly
improve performance by reducing the number of required round trips and it
thus strongly recommended to use a server supporting these.

The COMPRESS=DEFLATE extension from [RFC4978] is used opportunistically on
remote capable servers, to further limit network traffic.
