NAME

git-imap-send - Dump a mailbox from stdin into an imap folder  

SYNOPSIS

git-imap-send  

DESCRIPTION

This command uploads a mailbox generated with git-format-patch into an imap drafts folder. This allows patches to be sent as other email is sent with mail clients that cannot read mailbox files directly.

Typical usage is something like:

git-format-patch --signoff --stdout --attach origin | git-imap-send  

CONFIGURATION

git-imap-send requires the following values in the repository configuration file (shown with examples):

[imap]
    Folder = "INBOX.Drafts"

[imap]
    Tunnel = "ssh -q user@server.com /usr/bin/imapd ./Maildir 2> /dev/null"

[imap]
    Host = imap.server.com
    User = bob
    Pass = pwd
    Port = 143
 

BUGS

Doesn't handle lines starting with "From " in the message body.
