This document describes the WITHIN extension to IMAP SEARCH.  IMAP
SEARCH returns messages whose internal date is within or outside a
specified interval.  The mechanism described here, OLDER and YOUNGER,
differs from BEFORE and SINCE in that the client specifies an
interval, rather than a date.  WITHIN is useful for persistent
searches where either the device does not have the capacity to
perform the search at regular intervals or the network is of limited
bandwidth and thus there is a desire to reduce network traffic from
sending repeated requests and redundant responses.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
