Working @ Dovecot

It’s been a hectic couple of weeks, and so this post is a bit delayed. Oh well.

A couple of months ago, I decided that it was time for me to move on work-wise. As a result, four weeks ago, I joined Dovecot Oy (a part of Open-Xchange).

As you may have guessed from the name of the company, I get to spend my time making the Dovecot email server code better, more featureful, and otherwise more excellent. It is certainly a significant but fun change—going from kernel hacking on a fairly unknown operating system to hacking on the world’s most popular IMAP server. Not a day goes by where I’m not surprised just how much functionality is in the Dovecot codebase, or when I get to consult an RFC related to some IMAP extension I didn’t even know existed.

So, with this said, you should expect to see some posts related to Dovecot, Dovecot code, and email in general.

imap4 partial fetch request — Sadly, mutt still doesn’t have it. I really don’t enjoy waiting for a large attachment to get downloaded over a slow link just because I want to read the email body.

Mathematicians invent new way to slice pizza into exotic shapes — I am not sure how some of those new shapes can possibly work in the real life without the notches essentially splitting the slice into a pile of mush that cannot be held.
