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:

* acl plugin: Added an alternative global ACL file that can contain mailbox patterns. See http://wiki2.dovecot.org/ACL for details.
* imap proxy: Added proxy_nopipelining passdb setting to work around other IMAP servers' bugs (MS Exchange 2013 especially).
* Added %{auth_user}, %{auth_username} and %{auth_domain} variables. See http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Variables for details.
* Added support for LZ4 compression.
* stats: Track also wall clock time for commands.
* pop3_migration plugin improvements to try harder to match the UIDLs correctly.
* imap: SEARCH/SORT PARTIAL reponses may have been too large.
* doveadm backup: Fixed assert-crash when syncing mailbox deletion.

- Fixed infinite loop in message parsing if message ends with
  "--boundary" and CR (without LF). Messages saved via SMTP/LMTP can't

  trigger this for him/herself though.

  sent to it.

  as it should have. Instead it was being imported, causing "doveadm
  replicator remove" commands to not work very well.
