imapfw, the next mail framework

OfflineIMAP is a python program included in Gentoo to synchronize emails via IMAP. Since some months, the imapfw project was started to become the next generation tool with a new approach and extended features.

There are various features that can be written for imapfw like:

  • enable syncing of mail between a local Maildir and a remote IMAP server
  • rewrite the offlineimap program with the framework
  • start a new in-house IMAP library


A more detailed page dedicated to the GSoC can be found on the OfflineIMAP website.
