Cyrus IMAP Server: Special Characters¶
This document is supposed to be a repository of "special characters" used in Cyrus naming of users, folders, directory paths, etc.
(LMTP) Separation of postuser and target mailbox for delivery
(LMTP) Separation of username and submailbox for delivery
(IMAP) Flag at end of login name that indicates that LIST should return LSUB results (when imapmagicplus is set)
(POP3) POP a subfolder directly (e.g. rjs3+foo POPs user.rjs3.foo)
[mailbox names] Hierarchy separators
[mailbox names] In unixhierarchysep, ^ is the part of the internal name that represents a '.'
[usernames] These are realm separators for the purposes of authentication
IMAP LIST filters (e.g. rjs3+foo will only list folders that match foo*)
possibly other interpretations here: - rjs3+foo will do an effective chroot(foo.) - rjs3+foo will only list folders in user.rjs3.foo*
