Subject [jira] [Updated] (IMAP-380) Implement IMAP LIST Extension for Special-Use Mailboxes, RFC 6154
Date Tue, 18 Aug 2015 17:09:45 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IMAP-380?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Steve Brewin updated IMAP-380:
------------------------------
    Description: 
>From the RFC 6154:
  "Some IMAP message stores include special-use mailboxes, such as those
   used to hold draft messages or sent messages.  Many mail clients
   allow users to specify where draft or sent messages should be put,
   but configuring them requires that the user know which mailboxes the
   server has set aside for these purposes."

Some mail clients, notably Microsoft Outlook 2013 and later, require RFC 6154  support to
function correctly. RFC 6154 is a standardisation of Google's XLIST capability that also extends
the CREATE command to allow the designation of special use mailboxes.

Some work is already committed to support XLIST. An implementer might use this as a starting
point as RFC 6154 and XLIST are very similar. The XLIST work is incomplete; the CAPABILITY
command does not announce it and there is no provision for designating a mailbox as special.

After implementing RFC 6154 fully enabling XLIST support would be trivial, though most mail
clients and even Google's GMail have moved on to the official RFC.
