NAME
       aerc-imap - IMAP	configuration for aerc(1)

SYNOPSIS
       aerc implements the IMAP	protocol as specified by RFC 3501, with	the
       following IMAP extensions:

       o   IDLE	(RFC 2177)

CONFIGURATION
       IMAP configuration may be done interactively with the :new-account com-
       mand.

       In accounts.conf	(see aerc-config(5)), the following IMAP-specific op-
       tions are available:

       source
	   imap[s][+insecure|+oauthbearer]://username[:password]@host-
	   name[:port]?[:oauth2_params]

	   Remember that all fields must be URL	encoded. The "@" symbol, when
	   URL encoded,	is %40.

	   The meaning of the scheme component is:

	   imap://:
	       IMAP with STARTTLS

	   imap+insecure://:
	       IMAP without STARTTLS

	   imaps:
	       IMAP with TLS/SSL

	   imaps+oauthbearer://
	       IMAP with TLS/SSL using OAUTHBEARER Authentication

	       oauth2_params:

	       If specified, the configured password is	used as	an refresh to-
	       ken that	is exhanged with an access token

	       o   token_endpoint (required)
	       o   client_id (optional)
	       o   client_secret (optional)
	       o   scope (optional)

	       Example:	imaps+oauthbearer://...?token_end-
	       point=https://...&client_id=

       source-cred-cmd
	   Specifies the command to run	to get the password for	the IMAP ac-
	   count. This command will be run using `sh -c	[command]`. If a pass-
	   word	is specified in	the source option, the password	will take
	   precedence over this	command.

	   Example:

	   pass	hostname/username
