IMSP (Internet Message Support Protocol) [IMSP] was designed and implemented to supply the support functions necessary for a large scale IMAP4 based infrastructure with highly mobile users. Although the protocol was successful in its mission, it was realized that a slightly different approach could achieve more for the Internet Standards community. Thus was born the idea for ACAP (Application Configuration Access Protocol) [ACAP].
