[Dovecot] Coding question again...

Yet I do not know, what functionality the 1.2 provides. In fact I just need an implementation of the 4 IMAP commands MYRIGHTS, GETACL, SETACL and DELETEACL and the ability for the user to share mailboxes himself by using these commands.

The groupware we distribute (Open-Xchange, perhaps you know it) implements this folder sharing by providing a context menu where the user can set the folder rights within his mailbox, and with this he can enable other users to access his folders.

The description of the ACL-feature in the table of 1.2 on the roadmap was not completely comprehendible for me, so I've been not quite sure, if dovecot can do these things above.
But if you say, it can do, I would be able to stop the extra work and focus our work on building the mail system on basis of dovecot 1.2.

What do you think? :-)

Best regards

But some of these customers want to use mailbox sharing (user driven). The groupware supports this, and my work is to implement a plugin for dovecot which provides this functionality. So we surely will try to do some testing of the 1.2 on our own and hopefully help the product to become stable soon.
