A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

        Title           : IMAP extension for referencing the last SEARCH result
        Author(s)       : A. Melnikov
        Filename        : draft-melnikov-imap-search-res-02.txt
        Pages           : 7

Many IMAP clients use the result of a SEARCH command as the input to
   perform another operation, for example fetching the found messages,
   deleting them or copying them to another mailbox.

   This can be achieved using standard IMAP operations described in RFC
   2501, however this would be suboptimal: the server will send the list
   of found messages to the client, after that the client will have to
   parse the list, reformat it and send it back to the server.  The
   client can't pipeline the SEARCH command with the subsequent command.

   This document proposes an IMAP extension that allows a client to tell
   a server to use the result of the latest SEARCH (or UID SEARCH)
   command as an input to any subsequent command.

NOTE:   The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
        MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
        feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
        command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
        up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
        how to manipulate these messages.
