"I've had the opportunity over the years to be a principle person doing the architecture and design of two fairly large-scale email systems, one using commercial products based on Cyrus for a large national ISP and one using purely open-source software and built around Courier-IMAP for a medium-to-large multinational corporation. I feel that this book has definitely helped me achieve a better and deeper understanding of these packages."
--Brad Knowles, ;LOGIN: VOL. 33, NO. 5

"IT pros and libraries catering to them need The Book of IMAP: a reference that offers detailed instructions to IMAP and POP3, the basics governing all modern mail servers and clients. The authors have set up hundreds of mail servers: their advice is invaluable and clear."
--Diane Donavan, Midwest Book Review

"To summarize, the book is a useful and thoroughly technical read for the mailserver administrator working on IMAP or related professionals wanting to know more about this opensource mailserver technology."
--Ganadeva Bandyopadhyay,

"The Book of IMAP is a quality resource for any serious mail administrator. The approach taken is direct, but at the same time it's very expansive, setting this book apart from most others I have read."
--Ryan Masters, OS News
