A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
 This draft is a work item of the IMAP APPEND Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

        Title           : IMAP4 non-synchronizing literals
        Author          : Alexey Melnikov
	Filename        : draft-ietf-imapapnd-rfc2088bis-02.txt
	Pages           : 7
	Date            : 2016-02-05

   The Internet Message Access Protocol (RFC 3501) contains the
   "literal" syntactic construct for communicating strings.  When
   sending a literal from client to server, IMAP requires the client to
   wait for the server to send a command continuation request between
   sending the octet count and the string data.  This document specifies
   an alternate form of literal which does not require this network
   round trip.

   This document specifies 2 IMAP extensions: LITERAL+ and LITERAL-.
   The former allows the alternate form of literals in all IMAP command.
   The latter is the same as LITERAL+, but disallow the alternate form
   of literals unless they are 4096 bytes or less.
