Subject IMAP Protocol
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2002 22:02:49 GMT
A quick question regarding mail delivery to multi-user mailboxes via IMAP 
store protocol.

I have noticed that there is a default user within James's mail server which 
is delegated with the responsibility of deliverying mail to users' inboxes 
(INBOX mailbox) whenever they are addressed to appropriate recipients. This 
mail delivery user is called 'JamesMDA' which acts as a mail delivery agent 
for IMAP mail delivery to user inboxes. The problem is that this mail agent 
user is unable to forward mail to the appropriate user inboxes because it 
does not have lookup right priviledges for any INBOX mailbox to deliver mail 
to. This is a bug within the proposed IMAP protocol. The ideal solution is 
to grant lookup rights for every user's INBOX mailbox and not restricted to 
just the owner of the folder. Ideally, this should be done whenever a new 
mail account is created within JAMES.

The question is: is the above conclusion correct?

Look forward to your reply and feedback.
