Protocol Action: INTERNET MESSAGE ACCESS PROTOCOL - MULTIAPPEND EXTENSION to Proposed Standard




The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'INTERNET MESSAGE ACCESS 
PROTOCOL - MULTIAPPEND EXTENSION' <draft-crispin-imap-multiappend-07.txt> 
as a Proposed Standard. This has been reviewed in the IETF but is not 
the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ned 
Freed and Patrik Faltstrom.

Technical Summary

protocol. This extension provides substantial performance improvements 
for IMAP clients which upload multiple messages at a time to a mailbox 
on the server.

Working Group Summary

product of that group.

Protocol Quality

This document was reviewed for the IESG by Ned Freed.
