IMAP Server Compliance

  • Checkpoint: checkpoint parameter works. When issuing a CHECK command in all sessions, their state looks identical.
  • \Recent: Exactly one session sees a new message as \Recent - no more and no less.
  • Atomic flags: Flags and keywords can be added/removed in multiple sessions without one session dropping changes made by other (own_flags test)
  • Expunges: How messages expunged by another session are handled.
    • A: Expunging a message from one session keeps it available for other sessions until they can be notified that it's expunged. Flag updates to expunged messages may not be visible to other sessions though.
    • B: Some cached fields may be returned for expunged messages, but message bodies can't be retrieved anymore. Flags can still be updated within the session (but updates may not be visible to other sessions).
    • C: Even message flags can't be updated for expunged messages.
  • Failures: Number of failures using [:ImapTest/Tests:command/reply tests] (failures / number of tests). These numbers may not be exact all the time, because the tests are still changing.
