Mail::IMAPTalk communicates with an IMAP server. Each IMAP server command is
mapped to a method of this object.
Although other IMAP modules exist on CPAN, this has several advantages over
other modules.
* It parses the more complex IMAP structures like envelopes and body
structures into nice Perl data structures
* It correctly supports atoms, quoted strings and literals at any point.
Some parsers in other modules aren't fully IMAP compatiable and may
break at odd times with certain messages on some servers
* It allows large return values (eg. attachments on a message) to be read
directly into a file, rather than into memory
* It includes some helper functions to find the actual text/plain or
text/html part of a message out of a complex MIME structure. It also
can find a list of attachements, and CID links for HTML messages with.
attached images
* It supports decoding of MIME headers to Perl utf-8 strings
automatically, so you don't have to deal with MIME encoded headers
(enabled optionally)
While the IMAP protocol does allow for asynchronous running of commands, this
module is designed to be used in a synchronous manner.
