Abstract

This document describes a profile (a set of required extensions, restrictions, and usage modes), dubbed Lemonade, of the IMAP, mail submission, and Sieve protocols. This profile allows clients (especially those that are constrained in memory, bandwidth, processing power, or other areas) to efficiently use IMAP and Submission to access and submit mail. This includes the ability to forward received mail without needing to download and upload the mail, to optimize submission, and to efficiently resynchronize in case of loss of connectivity with the server.

Abstract

   This document describes a profile (a set of required extensions,    restrictions, and usage modes), dubbed Lemonade, of the IMAP, mail    submission, and Sieve protocols.  This profile allows clients    (especially those that are constrained in memory, bandwidth,    processing power, or other areas) to efficiently use IMAP and    Submission to access and submit mail.  This includes the ability to    forward received mail without needing to download and upload the    mail, to optimize submission, and to efficiently resynchronize in    case of loss of connectivity with the server.

   The Lemonade Profile relies upon several extensions to IMAP, Sieve,    and Mail Submission protocols.  The document also defines a new IMAP    extension and registers several new IMAP keywords.
