TCP/IP command. The Interactive Mail Access Protocol (IMAP) server daemon. imapd is invoked by inetd and listens on port 143 for requests from IMAP clients. IMAP allows mail programs to access remote mailboxes as if they were local.

IMAP can be used for online and offline reading. The popular Pine mail client contains support for IMAP.
