RE: IMAP Experiences.
Gee dejavu... I just mentioned the Cyrus Server which
I use inhouse for our IMAP services. It can use PAM. I don't
know if there is a .deb package for it, but it compiles easily
on debian. I am using an older version however. Their newer
version looks even easier to do your custom mods. One of the
things I changed was to add in notification services over and
above the one they have defined.
I didn't really like the UW Imap server all that much. I do use
the C-Client library, and Mark Crispin who is mainly responsible
for this software has had a big hand in developing the IMAP standard.
Not that your really need to be told, but I've heard that MS-Exchange
does weird things when you try to configure it as an IMAP server.
