Working with IMAP4-Specific Settings


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-18

The IMAP4 virtual server has two protocol-specific settings:

  • Include all public folders when a folder is requested   Unlike POP3, which allows clients to access only mail messages, IMAP4 clients have access to folders other than the Inbox folder. However, this ability to access other folders must be enabled on the virtual server.
  • Enable fast message retrieval   Fast message retrieval improves performance by approximating message size, as opposed to actually calculating the message size. Performance improves because less processor work is required.

You select these settings on the General tab in the Default IMAP4 Virtual Server Properties dialog box.


For detailed steps about how to configure these settings, see the following topics:
