Binc IMAP is a well designed, modular IMAP server for Maildir

Binc IMAP is a well designed, modular IMAP server for Maildir. Its goals are to be secure, stable, and fast, yet flexible and easy to maintain.

For those familiar with qmail-pop3d, this IMAP server will be the natural choice. It is invoked similarily and uses checkpassword to authenticate.

Binc IMAP 1.2 is a Maildir only IMAP server (no traditional mbox support).

Binc IMAP compiles and runs on RedHat, Mandrake, SuSE and Debian Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Solaris/SunOS, Mac OS X, and more.
