NAME

bincimapd - IMAP4rev1 server

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

bincimap-up [ options... ] -- <authenticator> bincimapd

DESCRIPTION

Binc IMAP is a simple xinetd / tcpserver invoked IMAP4rev1 server with support for Maildir. It is very easy to install and use.

To configure Binc IMAP, use either command line arguments, configuration file entries, or a combination of both.

Note that command line arguments always override config file options.

OPTIONS

Command line arguments are optional. The default behavior is to inherit options from bincimap-up through the environment. Passing arguments to bincimapd will override settings inherited from bincimap-up.

bincimapd takes one optional unqualified argument in addition to regular command line options: the Mailbox path. Appending a path as an option to bincimapd will override any mailbox path set by command line options or inherited from bincimap-up.

For a complete listing of options for bincimapd, see the bincimap-up man page.

Local options are read through the file .bincimap, located at the current working directory that bincimapd is invoked in, before it enters the depository path.

FILES

All Binc IMAP’s configuration files use the same Binc::Storage format. It’s basically a sequence of named sections enclosed in {braces}, each containing a set of comma separated key=value pairs. The keys must be alphanumeric, and the values can contain any character if it’s quoted.

$HOME/.bincimap
  Local configurations file. This file has a similar structure to the global bincimap.conf file, and it can be set by each user to override both command line arguments and the global configuration. It only works for a few selected options, though.

$HOME/<maildepot>/.../bincimap-uidvalidity
  This file contains a version number, and the UIDNEXT and UIDVALIDITY values for the given mailbox.

$HOME/<maildepot>/.../bincimap-cache
  This file contains a version number, and it stores the UID values for each message, along with (optionally) some cached information.

ENVIRONMENT

bincimapd reads its configuration from the environment, as passed by bincimap-up. In addition, bincimapd reads the variable BINCIMAP_LOGIN which contains a message from bincimap-up with the tag and command used to authenticate, separated by a +. If the tag and command used to authenticate were "1 LOGIN", then BINCIMAP_LOGIN would be set to "LOGIN+1".

Note that it is essential that the authenticator invoked by bincimap-up does not clear the environment.
