Provide near real-time updates for IMAP IDLE

Synopsis

idled [ -C config-file ]

Description

idled is a long lived datagram daemon which receives notifications of mailbox changes and signals the appropriate imapd to report the changes to the client.

Idled is usually started from master(8).

idled reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file unless specified otherwise by -C.

Options

-C config-file

Use the specified configuration file config-file rather than the default imapd.conf(5).

Examples

idled is commonly included in the START section of cyrus.conf(5) like so:

START {
    recover                 cmd="/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/ctl_cyrusdb -r"
    idled                   cmd="/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/idled"
    tlsprune                cmd="/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/tls_prune"
}
