Dovecot is a mail server whose major goals are security and extreme
reliability. It tries very hard to handle all error conditions and verify
that all data is valid, making it nearly impossible to crash. It supports
mbox/Maildir and its own dbox/mdbox formats, and should also be pretty
fast, extensible, and portable.
This package contains the Dovecot IMAP server.
