I agree here. I think we (Evolution team, although I'm not part of that,
strictly speaking) should put a lot more effort in getting the best out
of the latest IMAP standards.

A lot of IMAP servers are also improving a lot lately, and are
implementing these newer things. 

CONDSTORE, QRESYNC, IDLE, NOTIFY are samples of very interesting IMAP
enhancements that we should support in my opinion.

I also think that taking a look at spruce and GMime is a good idea for
this. Although improving Camel's IMAP4 provider is not a bad idea
either.

The current Camel IMAP provider is limited in what we can make it do. I
would, for example, love to have a solid client-side library that does
pipelining with the IMAP server.

Marrying the MIME handling with the server, for things like CATENATE, is
also something I would love to have.

Oh ... I have a lot of ideas :)

Note that I will attend a Lemonade meeting in Munich next month. If
there are any items that I should raise for Evolution, you can let me
know about them.

I of course have a small list myself already.
