I was laid off today. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a change to push imap-2007b out the door in release status, but the development tarball there is pretty close to my final bits.
If you have support requests for UW imapd, please send them to the Alpine development team at UW, alpine-contact at u.washington.edu.
It has been a privilege to work with all of you for the past 20 years.

Why on earth would anyone want to lay off Mark Crispin, is a mystery to me. As a long time user of the UW-IMAP toolkit I want to thank MRC for his work and software, which solved many of my problems and preserved much of my time.
