NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       imapd.conf - IMAP configuration file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The /etc/imapd.conf file is the configuration file for the
       IMAP server.  It defines local parameters for IMAP.

       Each line of the /etc/imapd.conf file has the form option:
       value where option is the name of the configuration option
       being set and value is the value  that  the  configuration
       option is being set to.

       Blank lines and lines beginning with ``#'' are ignored.

       For  Boolean  options,  the values ``yes'', ``on'', ``t'',
       and ``1'' turn the option on, the values ``no'',  ``off'',
       ``f'', and ``0'' turn the option off.

Field Descriptions    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  following  sections detail options that can be placed
       in  the  /etc/imapd.conf  file,  and  show  each  option's
       default  value.  Some options have no default value, these
       are listed with ``<no default>''.  Some options default to
       the  empty  string, these are listed with ``<none>''.  The
       pathname of the IMAP configuration directory.  This  field
       is  required.   The partition name used by default for new
       mailboxes.  The pathname of the partition name.  At  least
       one field, for the partition named in the defaultpartition
       option, is required.  For example, if  the  value  of  the
       defaultpartition  option  is  default, then the partitiondefault
 field is required.  The umask value used by  various
  IMAP programs.  Permit logins by the user "anonymous"
       using any password.  Also allows use of the SASL ANONYMOUS
       mechanism.   The  percent  of quota utilization over which
       the server generates warnings.  The  length  of  the  IMAP
       server's  inactivity  autologout  timer,  in minutes.  The
       minimum value is 30, the default.   The  list  of  userids
       with  administrative  rights.  Separate each userid with a

              Any account that receives mail via the IMAP  server
              should  not  be included in the list as an administrator
 account.  This could  cause  problems.   For
              instance,  this type of administrator would be able
              to create top-level mailboxes that are  visible  to
              users,  but not writable by users.  The Access Control
 List (ACL) placed  on  a  newly-created  (nonuser)
  mailbox that does not have a parent mailbox.
              If nonzero, normal users may create their own  IMAP
              accounts by creating the mailbox INBOX.  The user's
              quota is set to the value if it is positive, otherwise
  the  user has unlimited quota.  Include notations
 in the protocol telemetry logs indicating the
              number   of  seconds  since  the  last  command  or
              response.  If enabled, the deliver command  rejects
              messages  with  8-bit  characters in their headers.
              Otherwise, 8-bit characters are changed to X.  Number
  of  seconds  to pause after a successful plain
              text  login.   For  systems  that  support   strong
              authentication,  this permits users to perceive the
              cost of using plain text passwords.  (This does not
              affect  the  use of PLAIN in SASL authentications.)
              The pathname of the srvtab file that  contains  the
              server's private key.  This option is passed to the
              SASL library and  overrides  its  default  setting.
              The  list  of  remote realms whose users may log in
              using cross-realm authentications.   Separate  each
              realm  name by a space.  (A cross-realm identity is
              considered any identity returned by  SASL  with  an
              "@"  in  it.)  If enabled, any authentication identity
 that has rights on a user's INBOX may  log  in
              as  that user.  If enabled, the user mailbox directories
 in the  /var/spool/imap/user  directory  are
              sorted into subdirectories a through z, just as the
              files in the user and quota configuration  directories.
   This  is  recommended if the data partition
              has a highly populated mailbox tree.  The mechanism
              used  by the server to verify plain text passwords.
              In Tru64 UNIX, this should be set to tru64.  It  is
              needed  for  authentication in a C2 environment and
              for proper mail  password  usage.   Other  possible
              values also include passwd and shadow.  If enabled,
              the SASL library automatically creates  authentication
 secrets when given a plain text password.  Any
              other SASL option can be set by preceding  it  with


       Commands:  cyradm(1),  deliver(8), imapd(8), imapquota(8),
