IESG NOTE

The IMAP extension described here assumes a particular means of using

IMAP to support disconnected operation. However, this means of

supporting disconnected operation is not yet documented. Also, there

are multiple theories about how best to do disconnected operation in

IMAP, and as yet, there is no consensus on which one should be

adopted as a standard.

This document is being approved as a Proposed Standard because it

does not appear to have technical flaws in itelf. However, approval

of this document as a Proposed Standard should not be considered an

IETF endorsement of any particular means of doing disconnected

operation in IMAP.
