Technical Summary The IMAP4rev1 protocol has powerful search facilities as part of the core protocol, but lacks the ability to create live, updated results which can be easily handled. This memo provides such an extension, and shows how it can be used to provide a facility similar to virtual mailboxes. Working Group Summary This is an individual submission but was discussed by the Lemonade WG and has been added to the Lemonade WG profile bis specification. Protocol Quality This was reviewed for the IESG by Chris Newman. The document received at least 5 positive reviews. All issues raised so far were fixed. At least 2 server implementors and 1 client implementor are working on implementations. One more client implementor is thinking about implementing this extension.
