idled [ -C config-file ]


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 cyrmaster.

Idled reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file unless specified otherwise by -C. The idlesocket option is used to specify the Unix domain socket to listen on for notifications.
