Hi Cyrus, I look forward to trying out your Beta version when it becomes
available.  Will it have similar support as the Cyrus IMAP server does?
What I mean is that just running "imspd" would allow the server to listen
only on port 406 with STARTTLS support.  Running "imspd -s" would allow
the server to listen only on port 906 and would negotiate an SSL session
as soon as the connection is made.

Currently, we are running "imspd" with plaintext support and running
stunnel to get the "imspd -s" support.  It would be nice to eliminate the
stunnel altogether and just running the IMSP server.

Another thing I would like to see is something that can be included in the
global options file to turn off plaintext logins on the port 406 and force
the use of STARTTLS if they are going to connect to that port.  This is how
Cyrus IMAP works with the imapd.conf file (i.e. "allowplaintext: no").

Finally, I have a patch that allows case insensitive address books.  Would
you be interested in it?  Before we switched to Cyrus IMSP, we were using
some other IMSP server (can't even remember now what it was, since it has
been so long ago).  If you would like to know more about that, let me know.
