Re: proposal: imap, imap-server, and imap-util

Yeah, I saw that option too... I don't mind either way that is preferred :)
Maybe there are people on the list (including you) that manage mail servers
or know more about this than me and could suggest one way over another?  I
really only know enough to get it working in my little system.  Even though
I just put a new version out there with two separate packages, I'd prefer
SSLTYPE=unix, which would allow people to use secure imap if they prefer,
yet allow others to run insecure if they want.

I definitely don't have a clue about kerberos...

Thanks for the compliment Eduardo, and I don't think your (or anyone elses)
feedback sounds negative at all.  Any feedback, especially from you (being
the maintainer of pine and from uw) is positive to me :)
