Reading up on IMAP specifications

28. February 2015

Currently reading up on the IMAP protocol, as one of my customers is using a server without IMAP support compiled :)

RFC 3501

I will be using a simple INBOX check for failed email notifications (sockets are your best friend). That will allow me  to set a flag for every new user account that is still unconfirmed and used a broken email address for their registration. These accounts can than be verified manually :)

Happy socket = happy customer.

Btw, here is a nice piece of code to quickly parse the email header in PHP

I love programming,  design and know my way around server architecture as well.  I would never feel complete, with one of these missing.

I have a broad range of interests, that’s why I constantly dive into new technologies and expand my knowledge where ever required. Technologies are evolving fast and I enjoy using the latest.

Apart from that, I am a peace loving guy who tries to have people around him that think the same.  I truly believe in the principle: “If you help someone, someone will help you, when you need it."
