NAME
       bincimapd - IMAP4rev1 server

SYNOPSIS
       bincimap-up [ options...	] -- <authenticator> bincimapd

DESCRIPTION
       Binc  IMAP is a simple xinetd / tcpserver invoked IMAP4rev1 server with
       support for Maildir.  It	is very	easy to	install	and use.

       To configure Binc IMAP, use either command line	arguments,  configura-
       tion file entries, or a combination of both.

       Note that command line arguments	always override	config file options.

OPTIONS
       Command line arguments are optional. The	default	behavior is to inherit
       options from bincimap-up	through	the environment. Passing arguments  to
       bincimapd will override settings	inherited from bincimap-up.

       bincimapd  takes	one optional unqualified argument in addition to regu-
       lar command line	options: the Mailbox path.  Appending a	path as	an op-
       tion  to	 bincimapd  will override any mailbox path set by command line
       options or inherited from bincimap-up.

       For a complete listing of options for bincimapd,	 see  the  bincimap-up
       man page.

       Local  options are read through the file	.bincimap, located at the cur-
       rent working directory that bincimapd is	invoked	in, before  it	enters
       the depository path.

FILES
       All  Binc IMAP's	configuration files use	the same Binc::Storage format.
       It's basically a	sequence of named sections enclosed in {braces},  each
       containing  a  set of comma separated key=value pairs. The keys must be
       alphanumeric, and the values can	contain	any character if it's quoted.

       $HOME/.bincimap
	      Local configurations file. This file has a similar structure  to
	      the global bincimap.conf file, and it can	be set by each user to
	      override both command line arguments and the  global  configura-
	      tion. It only works for a	few selected options, though.

       $HOME/_maildepot_/.../bincimap-uidvalidity
	      This  file contains a version number, and	the UIDNEXT and	UIDVA-
	      LIDITY values for	the given mailbox.

       $HOME/_maildepot_/.../bincimap-cache
	      This file	contains a version number, and it stores the UID  val-
	      ues for each message, along with (optionally) some cached	infor-
	      mation.

ENVIRONMENT
       bincimapd reads its configuration from the environment,	as  passed  by
       bincimap-up.  In	 addition, bincimapd reads the variable	BINCIMAP_LOGIN
       which contains a	message	from bincimap-up with the tag and command used
       to  authenticate,  separated by a +. If the tag and command used	to au-
       thenticate were "1 LOGIN", then BINCIMAP_LOGIN would  be	 set  to  "LO-
       GIN+1".

       Note that it is essential that the authenticator	invoked	by bincimap-up
       does not	clear the environment.
