Summary     : Secure imap and pop3 server
Description :
Dovecot is an IMAP server for Linux/UNIX-like systems, written with security
primarily in mind.  It also contains a small POP3 server.  It supports mail
in either of maildir or mbox formats.

The SQL drivers and authentication plug-ins are in their subpackages.

Update Information:

- dovecot updated to 2.1.10
- imap: Implemented THREAD=ORDEREDSUBJECT extension.
- Added "doveadm exec" command to easily execute commands from libexec_dir, e.g. "doveadm exec imap -u user at domain"
- Added "doveadm copy" command.
- doveadm copy/move: Added optional user parameter to specify the source username. This allows easily copying mails between different users.
- Added namespace { disabled } setting to quickly enable/disable namespaces. This is especially useful when its value is returned by userdb.
- Added mailbox_alias plugin. It allows creating mailbox aliases using symlinks.
- imapc storage: Added imapc_max_idle_time setting to force activity on connection.
- fts-solr: Expunging multiple messages is now faster.
- director: In some conditions director may have disconnected from another director (without logging about it), thinking it was sending invalid data.
- imap: Various fixes to listing mailboxes.
- pop3-migration plugin: Avoid disconnection from POP3 server due to idling.
- login processes crashed if there were a lot of local {} or remote {} settings blocks.
- pigeonhole updated to 0.3.3:
- sieve-refilter tool: improved man page documentation by explicitly specifying the syntax used for mailbox arguments.
- Sieve: spamtest and virustest extensions: improved trace debugging of score calculation.
- Sieve: made error messages about exceeding the maximum number of actions more verbose.
- Sieve tools: fixed problems with running as root: sievec and sieve-dump now ignore mail_uid and mail_gid settings when run as root.
- Sieve: fixed bug in action accounting (for limit checking): increase action instance count only when an action is actually created.
- Sieve: include extension: fixed namespace separation of :global and :personal scripts.
- ManageSieve: fixed segfault bug triggered by CHECKSCRIPT command.
- Fixed linking with ld.gold.
- Fixed several Clang compile warnings and a few potential bugs.
