dbmail-imapd - provides access to the DBMail system to clients supporting
Internet Message Access Protocol, IMAP4r1, as specified in RFC 3501.

dbmail-imapd [-f configfile] [-p pidfile] [-nvVh]

The dbmail-imapd daemon is a fully featured IMAP4r1 server. 


-p pidfile::
  Specify an alternate pid file. By default the daemons use dbmail-<daemon>.pid
  for their pid files, saving them in the directory specified by the
  pid_directory entry in dbmail.conf or if that does not exist the value set by
  the configuration option --localstatedir, and will halt if the pid file
  cannot be written. Use the -p pidfile option to place the pid file in
  your system's preferred location.

  No daemonize: inetd mode. The program remains attached to the console from
  which it was started and will read and write on stdin/stdout. This is quite
  useful for debugging when combined with the -v option. It is also used for
  running from (x)inetd.

  No daemonize: init mode. The program remains attached to the console and will
  listen on the network sockets defined in dbmail.conf. This is mostly used 
  when running from inittab or under the control of daemontools.

-f configfile::
 Specify an alternate config file. The utilities are currently
 hardcoded to use /etc/dbmail.conf for their configs, and will
 halt if the config file cannot be found. Use the -f configfile
 option to specify your system's preferred config file location.
 Debian is patched to have /etc/dbmail/dbmail.conf as the default.

 Quietly skip interactive prompts and helpful status messages
 which would otherwise be printed to stdout. Use two -q's to
 silence errors which would otherwise be printed to stderr.

 Operate verbosely. Some of the utilities in the DBMail suite
 can take two -v's for extra verbosity. Those which don't understand
 this convention won't complain about having the extra -v
 and will simply operate at their normal verbosity.

For xinetd:::
  # /etc/xinet.d/dbmail-imap
  service imap
          socket_type     = stream
          wait            = no
          user            = root
          server          = /usr/local/sbin/dbmail-imapd
          protocol        = tcp
          server_args     = -n
          log_on_failure  += USERID
          disable         = no

For stunnel:::
  pid = /var/run/stunnel.pid
  cert = /etc/stunnel/yourkeys.pem

  # The next two sections will turn stunnel
  # into a 'secure inetd'. This is mutually
  # exclusive with the proxy sections below.
  accept = 995
  exec = /usr/local/sbin/dbmail-pop3d
  execargs = dbmail-pop3d -n

  accept = 993
  exec = /usr/local/sbin/dbmail-imapd
  execargs = dbmail-imapd -n

  # The next two sections will proxy
  # from the secure protocol over to
  # the insecure protocol. In this case,
  # use BINDIP=localhost in dbmail.conf!
  accept  = 995
  connect = 110

  accept  = 993
  connect = 143

  # Useful if your preferred SMTP server doesn't do SSL/TLS.
  # This is with your MTA configuration, not DBMail, per se.
  accept  = 465
  connect = 25
