Dovecot as an IMAP serverΒΆ

Dovecot was optimized since the beginning to work as an efficient IMAP server. Dovecot supports a lot of IMAP extensions.

Some of the extensions need to be explicitly enabled:

  • METADATA

  • COMPRESS

  • SEARCH=FUZZY

  • SPECIAL-USE

  • NOTIFY: Set mailbox_list_index=yes

  • URLAUTH: Set imap_urlauth_host and mail_attribute_dict
