The Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) is one of the two most prevalent network protocols for e-mail retrieval, the other being POP3.

Testing Edit

To test an IMAP server you can communicate manually with it through telnet:

telnet 143

A sample IMAP session:

. login username password
. status INBOX (messages)
