These packages contain the University of Washington IMAP server suite and
associated utilities.

uw-imap-imapd contains the imapd, ipop2d, and ipop3d daemons, which may be
added to your inetd.conf or xinetd configuration to provide an IMAP4rev1,
POP2, or POP3 mail server in a cygwin environment.

uw-imap-util contains the tmail, dmail, and mailutil programs, which can be
used for mailbox maintenance.  The tmail program is useful as an "injector"
of email into your UW-imap server.  For instance, fetchmail may be
configured to use tmail as the mail delivery agent.

The uw-imap package contains documentation of the suite.  This documentation
is placed under /usr/doc/uw-imap-2002c1/ and the file
/usr/doc/Cygwin/uw-imap.README also contains some useful information.

The University of Washington IMAP site is at http://www.washington.edu/imap/

Please send questions or comments to the cygwin mailing list at:
cygwin@cygwin.com.  Prior to submitting a question, please check the
included documentation, the UW-IMAP FAQ at
http://www.washington.edu/imap/IMAP-FAQs/index.html, the Cygwin FAQ, the
Cygwin User's Guide, and the mailing list archives.

This program was built with SSL support enabled, but it also allows
plaintext passwords when you configure your server not to use SSL.  This is
partially compliant to an IESG recommendation that plaintext passwords only
be allowed when SSL is being used.  Please refer to
/usr/doc/uw-imap-2002c1/SSLBUILD for information about this.
