       maildirkw - set maildir message keywords


       maildirkw [-c] [-l] [-a] [-r] {maildir} {message} [keyword...]

       maildirkw [-c] {-L} {maildir}


       maildirkw modifies the Courier IMAP server compatible maildir message
       keywords. This command allows an easy way to set or clear custom IMAP
       keywords associated with a particular message.  maildir is the pathname
       to a maildir, or a maildir folder. The -L option lists all messages in
       the maildir, and their associated keywords.  message specified which
       message´s keywords should be set. One or more keywords specifies a list
       of keywords to be set for this message. The specified list of keywords
       replaces any keywords presently set for the message, unless the -a or
       the -r option is specified.

       The -a option adds the keyword to existing keywords that are set for
       message. The -r removes keywords from message, leaving any remaining
       keywords set in place.

       The -l should be used if the Courier IMAP server´s configuration file
       has the IMAP_USELOCKS option set.  -l enables a compatible locking
       mechanism to update the message´s keywords.

       -c enables case-sensitive keywords. IMAP keywords are normally case
       insensitive.  -c needs to be used if the SMAP1[1] protocol extension is
       used, which uses case sensitive keywords.
