Many IMAP clients display information about total number of
messages / total number of unseen messages in IMAP mailboxes.  In order 
to do that, they are forced to issue a LIST or LSUB command and to list all
available mailboxes, followed by a STATUS command for each mailbox
found.  This document provides an extension to LIST command that
allows the client to request STATUS information for mailboxes
together with other information typically returned by the LIST

This document is a product of the Message Organization Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
