	Title           : IMAP4 Multimailbox SEARCH Extension
	Author(s)       : B. Leiba, A. Melnikov
	Filename        : draft-ietf-morg-multimailbox-search-04.txt

The IMAP4 specification allows the searching only of the selected
mailbox.  A user often wants to search multiple mailboxes, and a
client that wishes to support this must issue a series of SELECT and
SEARCH commands, waiting for each to complete before moving on to the
next.  This extension allows a client to search multiple mailboxes
with one command, limiting the round-trips and waiting for various
searches to complete, and not requiring disruption of the currently
selected mailbox.  This also uses MAILBOX and TAG fields in ESEARCH
responses, allowing a client to pipeline the searches if it chooses.


A revised version of this draft document will be submitted to the RFC
editor as a Proposed Standard for the Internet Community.  Discussion
and suggestions for improvement are requested, and should be sent to
