The Book of IMAP-New from No Starch Press
The Ultimate Resource for Mail Server Management
San Francisco, CA-The Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) allows
clients to access their email on a remote server, whether from the office,
a mobile phone, or a hotel room in Outer Mongolia. IMAP is powerful and
flexible, but it's also complicated; it's more difficult to implement than
POP3 and more error-prone for both client and server.
"The Book of IMAP" (No Starch Press, May 2008, 368 pp, ISBN 9781593271770)
offers a detailed introduction to IMAP and POP3, the two protocols that
govern all modern mail servers and clients. Readers learn how the
protocols work as well as how to install, configure, and maintain the two
most popular open source mail systems, Courier and Cyrus.
Authors Peer Heinlein and Peer Hartleben have set up hundreds of mail
servers and offer practical hints about troubleshooting errors, migration,
filesystem tuning, cluster setups, and password security that will help
readers extricate themselves from all sorts of tricky situations. Readers
also learn how to:
* Use built-in tools for server analysis, maintenance, and repairs
* Manage shared folders, virtual domains, and user quotas
* Authenticate user data
* Handle heavy traffic with load balancers and proxies
* Implement complementary webmail clients
* Set up and use the Sieve email filter
Thoroughly commented references to the POP and IMAP protocols round out
the book, making The Book of IMAP indispensable for all mail
Co-published with Open Source Press of Munich, Germany.
