       imapproxyd - IMAP proxy daemon


       imapproxyd [ -f <config file name> ] [ -p <pidfile name> ]


       This manual page documents briefly the imapproxyd command.  This manual
       page was written for  the  Debian  distribution  because  the  original
       program does not have a manual page.

       UP-ImapProxy  proxies  IMAP  transactions between an IMAP client and an
       IMAP server. The general idea is that the client should never know that
       it  is not talking to the real IMAP server, but ImapProxy caches server

       ImapProxy was written to compensate for webmail clients that are unable
       to  maintain  persistent  connections  to  an IMAP server. Most webmail
       clients need to log in to  an  IMAP  server  for  nearly  every  single
       transaction;  This  behaviour  can cause tragic performance problems on
       the IMAP server.  ImapProxy tries to deal with this problem by  leaving
       server  connections  open  for a short time after a webmail client logs
       out. When the webmail client connects again, ImapProxy  will  determine
       if there is a cached connection available and reuse it if possible.


       By  default,  UP-ImapProxy  reads /etc/imapproxy.conf on startup.  This
       can be changed by using the -f option

       Unless foreground_mode has been enabled, UP-ImapProxy  will  write  its
       PID to to a PID-file. It defaults to /var/run/, but can be
       overridden with the -p option
