Open Discussion → IMAP module: copy detector
How do POPFile IMAP module detects that message has been copied to some folder?
Is it getting done by proxying and processing IMAP COPY command or periodic folders checking and comparing some message hashs?
PS: Im sorry for my english.
From the wiki:
The IMAP module works by connecting to the IMAP server and checking for new mail periodically and processing the messages that it discovers by moving them into different folders on the IMAP server
One of the more interesting features is that if it detects that you have moved a message from one of these folders to another it will retrain that message into the new folder, allowing daily operation of popfile without touching the HTML GUI.
See the "Getting IMAP.pm up and running" page in the wiki for a more detailed explanation of POPFile's IMAP module and how it works.
