Cool by me, tomorrow night I'll rearrange it into a form where you
can add all the files I send you, instead of having to figure out which
should be in, and which are my scratch files. Or do you want to
give me cvs access to the sieve directory?

I'll get one, and perhaps implement it. That was just so you know
what I'm thinking about.

I think so.

What's the RFC for IMAP urls? Is there an IMAP url that allows
a password? I would really like to see something like:

  fileinto "imap://sam;AUTH=userpass,address@hidden/l.mailutils"

unless, and perhaps even if, there is a good configuration mechanism.

Yes, that's why I bring this up. I want to talk about the kind
of information that can be configured, and where to put it into
the API:

- default mailer (smtp, sendmail, procail?, ...)

- default folder (~/Mail, ...)

- default spool file (/var/spool/mail/user, ...)

- default mailbox (~/mbox,...)

- map of URLs to authentication information
     imap://address@hidden passwd=sekrut,
     pop://address@hidden passwd=julie,
     imap://address@hidden  sslkey=~/sslkey.pub,

Maybe what's needed is what you suggested, a token_t that
reads auth data from a cfg file, and a mailer_default()
that does something similar, or a maybe a config_t
object, with an ACAP one, and an LDAP one, and....

Ok, it's too late, I'm going to bed to dream of the Grand Unified
Mail Toolkit (or perhaps ma cherie).
