The IMAP Server component is used for receiving mail, managing messages and IMAP folders on the server.

This component represents fully functional multithreaded server with the ability to customize the user and thread performance settings, supports all IMAP4 extensions according to RFC 1730RFC 1731 and RFC 2060 protocols.
