Mix format? Why is that a "must have" nowadays?
Also, As for 2007'c', where would one obtain sources for it?
I take it that it was never actually officially released, but I
seem to remember Mark saying it was "ready to go".
As for other features/work -- does anyone know if another UW project is
up imapw? It seems to be fairly widely used.
It seems that Cyrus IMAP is the only open-source alternative available
any 'traction'? I've been unwilling to abandon the "mbox" format
provided by IMAP -- though heaven knows, how many 3rd party open-source
plug-ins don't handle the format (w/rt "From ") correctly all the time.
Not sure I know of many that do. I get "ribbed" by occasional mbox chomping
by Perl-scripts using CPAN modules and some derivations based on
8.x -- like the 'Nail' version that provides Mail/mailx drop-in support.
(Maybe that means I'm not 'ribbed' by chomping, but 'nailed'??)...:-|
