The Cyrus IMAP server is generally intended to be run on sealed systems, where normal users are not permitted to log in. The mailbox database is stored in parts of the filesystem that are private to Cyrus. All user access to mail is through the IMAP, POP3, or KPOP protocols. The private mailbox database design gives the server large advantages in efficiency, scalability, and administratability. Multiple concurrent read/write connections to the same mailbox are permitted. The server supports access control lists on mailboxes and storage quotas on mailbox hierarchies, multiple SASL mechanisms, and the Sieve mail filtering language.
The DBMAIL package replaces the normal UNIX mailing system. All email and user data is stored in a database. You can create an unlimited number of email accounts, which can be checked using the POP3 or IMAP protocol. Users can maintain their own set of email addresses. It is more scalable, more secure, and faster than traditional mail systems. DBMAIL has storage drivers for PostgreSQL and MySQL, and it has authentication drivers for PostgreSQL, MySQL, and LDAP.
Ledmail is a small mail checking utility that utilises the keyboard LEDs (caps, num, and scroll lock) to indicate when new mail has arrived. The LEDs are made to flash in an answerphone-like manner to indicate the number of new messages that are present in given mail servers. Each LED can be given a separate list of mail servers to poll, and the total number of new messages on those servers will determine how many times the LED will flash. Errors in checking mail servers cause the LEDs to flash in an inverted state, or to stay on. Ledmail can check both POP3 and IMAP4 mail servers.
pm2imap.pl is a perl script that will convert Pegasus Mail 3+ mailfolders (and trays) to Unix mbox format in the same Folder structure as your tray structure. This allows you to read your mail via IMAP instead of locally via the filesystem, which allows for "remote" reading of your mail.
pwcheck_mysql is a authentication module for the Cyrus IMAP server. Currently the Cyrus IMAP server only supports kerberos, /etc/passwd and ldap (via Clayton Donely's pwcheck_ldap module). Now with pwcheck_mysql, you can use a MySQL database to authenticate your IMAP users. This code has been tested for many months and seems to work fairly well.
qmail-ldap is an extension to stock qmail-1.03 to get all user account information from an LDAP database. Its primary target is POP toasters with thousands to millions of users, such as in ISP, FreeMail, and Corporate environments. It features full SMTP/POP3/IMAP server clustering for scaling and high availablity. Additionally there are state-of-the art spam filters, TLS SMTP encrytion, and mailbox quotas. A migration path for Netscape Messenger and Software.com's Post.Office installations is provided.
TWIG is a Web-based groupware suite written in PHP, compatible with both PHP3 and PHP4. Its features include IMAP and POP3 email, Usenet newsgroups, contact management, scheduling, shared notes and bookmarks, a todo list, and meeting announcements. Any piece of information can be shared with others via group oriented access controls. By using only plain HTML, it is a simple, cross-platform, fast, and browser-independent way to access or share almost any kind of information, without the complexity or costs of other intranet/groupware packages. It is fully internationalized, with 24 translations.
This is the University of Washington's IMAP source distribution, which includes the IMAP4rev1 server, as well as a POP server that, in addition to offering the normal POP service, can relay commands to an IMAP server, thus permitting existing POP clients to access an IMAP server.
