      Release Notes: This releases introduces a workaround for some servers that send an unexpected APPEND response. The serial number of the certificates is now taken into account because some servers send different certificates with the same subject and issuer. Details of the stored certificates are written to the certificates file, in order to make it easier to distinguish each of them. Support for TLS versions 1.1 and 1.2 for secure connections was added.

            very useful, especially for MS Exchange etc
            Company recently changed to MS Exchange which does not offer server-side filtering unlike other IMAP servers.

            imapfilter has been of great help here. I would love to know of a way to integrate it with a spam filter program or something, because my inbox is constantly getting spam. Anyone know a way to do this?

            Does exactly what it says on the tin
            A very useful alternative to procmail for those who
            like to keep their mail on an IMAP server. Not
            totally perfect, but very close.
