Hi Serge,

I'm pretty sure I was the last one to delve in there.... Unfortunately (for 
the IMAP proposal, anyway), I've been sidetracked working on the Myrmidon 
Ant2 proposal, which is taking up all of my Jakarta time presently.

When I finished up, I'd done some heavy refactoring of the command processing 
design, to break it down into separate classes for each command. I'd also 
simplified things a bunch by ignoring the ACL stuff, and changing the way the 
namespaces map to the set of mailboxes. This was based on my interpretaion of 
the RFC, but is a bit different to the way Charles had it working - I can 
furnish more details if you like.

I wrote some tests, and had a bunch of commands functioning, including LIST, 
CREATE, DELETE and a couple of others. FETCH was the next thing to get 
working, IIRC. 

To be honest, if you've got some time to dive in and start working on it, I 
think I might find a little time to join you. It's just that I have little 
need for an IMAP server myself, and with no-one else working on it to keep me 
interested, I sort of let it slip...
