It also includes part of the errata to RFC 3501. Working Group Summary This document has been reviewed by the IMAPEXT and LEMONADE working groups, though it is the work of an individual submitter. Review comments have been addressed in the document. Protocol Quality Scott Hollenbeck has reviewed this specification for the IESG.
