Yes, but c-client is horribly slow, leaves mailboxes with annoying "DO
NOT DELETE THIS MESSAGE -- FOLDER INTERNAL DATA" messages, and is
under the circumspect UW license...
But, there is hope. I have been working (with a couple of others) on
the forthcoming GNU mailutils package, which includes, among other
things, a library (may become libraries) that provide better than
c-client funcionality under LGPL. I hadn't mentioned it before because
I didn't want it to sound like a conflict of interests, but in this
case the API is still under development and can still be adaptable to
emerging standards such as this. Comments are, of course, welcome.
