Subject Re: IMAP and the database repository
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2001 01:24:04 GMT
Mail repositories (whether DB or file) support multiple folders.  I believe
there's a getChildRepository(String) method to get a subfolder (name may be
off, but it does support it).

IMAP development is at a stand-still just because nobody has time to work on
it.  We have spent a lot of time just trying to keep up with the Avalon
upgrades, but the main developer of IMAP just doesn't have the time he used
to.  Any help is definitely appreciated!

What other questions do you have?
