IMAP server for Maildir depositories

As an alternative to existing similar IMAP servers, Binc IMAP strives to be very easy to use, but robust, stable and secure. It aims at being absolutely compliant with the IMAP4rev1 protocol, and simple and modular in design, making it very easy for third parties to utilize the source code and enhance the product. Binc IMAP supports Dan J. Bernstein's Maildir format and checkpassword authentication interface. See for details.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
