BTW, the lemonade WG discussed "push" vs. "pull" for message submission
and we reached consensus on the "pull" model, namely the CATENATE and
URLAUTH extensions to IMAP and the BURL extension to Submission (SMTP).
I already committed a CATENATE implementation to Cyrus 2.3, and I have a
partial URLAUTH implementation that I have been working on. If/when I
have time, I *might* write BURL code for Sendmail.
Hopefully Oracle isn't trying to circumvent the WG and create its own
defacto-standard by deploying P-IMAP code.
