You're right. I don't realize how much bandwith it would need, more over
for shared folders.
I have already asked if it the could possible for 500 000 users to look
at the same public folder at the same time in
I would like a "permanent idling folder" (I don't know if can say that
expression) with mails into a specific format dedicated to shared
The IDLE command seems to allow that kind of permanent refresh : I was
with a friend on the phone and we where posting some mails into the
shared folder at the same time. And when I was changing a flag or
deleting a message e.g. I could hear his "oh !" exactly at the same the
time the message was changing of state !!!
"I like it, liiiiiiiiiike that" ;o)
Is there a RFC 2177 specialist around there who could explain us what is
the potency, actual or future, of the IDLE command ? It could be greatly
- an email that would allow to write into it without need to open it as
it was a draft mail;
- this email viewed at the same time by 2 people located into opposed
placed could be dynamical thanks to a special intervention of the
server. The IMAP server could support a special application for that
specific folder. Unless a special mail format would be enough with the
IDLE command ?
Let's say "imap.free.fr" is accessible from the outside world.
I got to learn on it.
