This document attempts to address some of the issues involved in building
a disconnected IMAP4 client.  In particular, it deals with the
issues of what might be called the "driver" portion of the synchronization
tool: the portion of the code responsible for issuing the correct set
of IMAP4 commands to synchronize the disconnected client in the way
that is most likely to make the human who uses the disconnected
client happy.

This note describes different strategies that can be used by disconnected
clients and shows how to use IMAP protocol in order to minimize the
time of the synchronization process.

This note also lists IMAP extensions that a server should implement in
order to provide better synchronization facilities to disconnected clients.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.
