mswatch watches mailboxes for changes to know when to initiate mailbox syncs. Using mswatch, your mail synchronization program can be called on demand instead of through polling, resulting in prompter mail delivery and lower bandwidth usage and server load.
mswatch is designed to work in conjunction with mailbox synchronization programs, and currently supports watching Linux (2.4+) hosted Maildirs (including Maildir folders, Maildir++). Future support for additional mailbox formats, especially for mbox, is planned.
This package provides the watch_maildirs and inputkill tools for use on imap server hosts.
