NAME
       imtest - interactive IMAP test program

SYNOPSIS
       imtest [ -t keyfile ] [ -p port ] [ -m mechanism ]
	      [ -a userid ] [ -u userid ] [ -k num ] [ -l num ]
	      [ -r realm ] [ -f file ] [ -n num ] [ -s ] [ -q ]
	      [ -c ] [ -i ] [ -z ] [ -v ] [ -I file ] [ -x file ]
	      [ -X file ] [ -o option=value ] hostname

DESCRIPTION
       imtest  is a utility that allows you to authenticate to a IMAP or IMSP server and interac-
       tively issue commands to it. Once authenticated you may issue any IMAP or IMSP command  by
       simply  typing it in. It is capable of multiple SASL authentication mechanisms and handles
       encryption layers transparently. This utility is often used for testing the operation of a
       imsp or imap server. Also those developing IMAP clients find it useful.

OPTIONS
       -t keyfile
	      Enable TLS.  keyfile contains the TLS public and private keys.  Specify "" to nego-
	      tiate a TLS encryption layer but not use TLS authentication.

       -p port
	      Port to connect to. If left off this defaults to imap as defined in /etc/services.

       -m mechanism
	      Force imtest to use mechanism for authentication. If not	specified  the	strongest
	      authentication  mechanism  supported by the server is chosen.  Specify login to use
	      the LOGIN command instead of AUTHENTICATE.

       -a userid
	      Userid to use for authentication; defaults to the current user.  This is the userid
	      whose password or credentials will be presented to the server for verification.

       -u userid
	      Userid  to use for authorization; defaults to the current user.  This is the userid
	      whose identity will be assumed after authentication.  NOTE: This is only used  with
	      SASL mechanisms that allow proxying (e.g. PLAIN, DIGEST-MD5).

       -k num Minimum protection layer required.

       -l num Maximum protection layer to use (0=none; 1=integrity; etc).  For example if you are
	      using the KERBEROS_V4 authentication mechanism specifying 0 will	force  imtest  to
	      not  use	any  layer and specifying 1 will force it to use the integrity layer.  By
	      default the maximum supported protection layer will be used.

       -r realm
	      Specify the realm to use. Certain authentication mechanisms (e.g.  DIGEST-MD5)  may
	      require one to specify the realm.

       -f file
	      Pipe file into connection after authentication.

       -n num Number  of  authentication  attempts;  default  = 1.  The client will attempt to do
	      SSL/TLS session reuse and/or fast reauth (e.g. DIGEST-MD5), if possible.

       -s     Enable IMAP over SSL (imaps).

       -q     Enable IMAP COMPRESSion (before the last authentication attempt).

       -c     Enable challenge prompt callbacks.  This will cause the OTP mechanism  to  ask  for
	      the  the one-time password instead of the secret pass-phrase (library generates the
	      correct response).

       -i     Don't send an initial client response for SASL mechanisms,  even	if  the  protocol
	      supports it.

       -I file
	      Echo the PID of the running process into file (This can be useful with -X).

       -x file
	      Open the named socket for the interactive portion

       -X file
	      Like -x, only close all file descriptors & daemonize the process.

       -o option=value
	      Set the SASL option to value.

       -v     Verbose. Print out more information than usual.

       -z     Timing test.
