       dbmail-imapd - provides access to the DBMail system to clients
       supporting Internet Message Access Protocol, IMAP4r1, as specified in
       RFC 3501.


       dbmail-imapd [-f configfile] [-p pidfile] [-nvVh]


       The dbmail-imapd daemon is a fully featured IMAP4r1 server. It will
       spawn into a number of default processes as set in the dbmail.conf
       file. These processes will enable full IMAP4r1 communication with


       -p pidfile
          Specify an alternate pid file. The daemons are currently hardcoded
          to use /var/run/dbmail-<daemon> for their pid files, and will halt
          if the pid file cannot be written. Use the -p pidfile option to
          place the pid file in your system’s preferred location.

          No daemonize. The program remains attached to the console from which
          it was started. This is quite useful for debugging when combined
          with the -v option.


       -f configfile
          Specify an alternate config file. The utilities are currently
          hardcoded to use /etc/dbmail.conf for their configs, and will halt
          if the config file cannot be found. Use the -f configfile option to
          specify your system’s preferred config file location.

          Quietly skip interactive prompts and helpful status messages which
          would otherwise be printed to stdout. Use two -q’s to silence errors
          which would otherwise be printed to stderr.

          Operate verbosely. Some of the utilities in the DBMail suite can
          take two -v’s for extra verbosity. Those which don’t understand this
          convention won’t complain about having the extra -v and will simply
          operate at their normal verbosity.

       For xinetd:

            # /etc/xinet.d/dbmail-imap
            service imap
                    socket_type     = stream
                    wait            = no
                    user            = root
                    server          = /usr/local/sbin/dbmail-imapd
                    protocol        = tcp
                    server_args     = -n
                    log_on_failure  += USERID
                    disable         = no

       For stunnel:

            pid = /var/run/
            cert = /etc/stunnel/yourkeys.pem

            # The next two sections will turn stunnel
            # into a ’secure inetd’. This is mutually
            # exclusive with the proxy sections below.
            accept = 995
            exec = /usr/local/sbin/dbmail-pop3d
            execargs = dbmail-pop3d -n

            accept = 993
            exec = /usr/local/sbin/dbmail-imapd
            execargs = dbmail-imapd -n

            # The next two sections will proxy
            # from the secure protocol over to
            # the insecure protocol. In this case,
            # use BINDIP=localhost in dbmail.conf!
            accept  = 995
            connect = 110

            accept  = 993
            connect = 143

            # Useful if your preferred SMTP server doesn’t do SSL/TLS.
            # This is with your MTA configuration, not DBMail, per se.
            accept  = 465
            connect = 25
