IMAP is a protocol that provides access to and manipulation of electronic mail messages that are stored on a server. IMAP includes operations for creating, deleting, and renaming mailboxes, checking for new messages; permanently removing messages; setting and clearing flags; and searching and filtering message attributes and texts.
Note that IMAP does not specify a protocol for sending messages (or message delivery). For this functionality, use a mail transfer protocol such as SMTP.
IMPORTANT:Unless otherwise marked, the features in GroupWise IMAP will work with GroupWise 8 and later versions.
