       git-imap-send - Send a collection of patches from stdin to an IMAP

       git imap-send

       This command uploads a mailbox generated with git format-patch into an
       IMAP drafts folder. This allows patches to be sent as other email is
       when using mail clients that cannot read mailbox files directly. The
       command also works with any general mailbox in which emails have the
       fields "From", "Date", and "Subject" in that order.

       Typical usage is something like:

       git format-patch --signoff --stdout --attach origin | git imap-send

       To use the tool, imap.folder and either imap.tunnel or must
       be set to appropriate values.

	   The folder to drop the mails into, which is typically the Drafts
	   folder. For example: "INBOX.Drafts", "INBOX/Drafts" or
	   "[Gmail]/Drafts". Required to use imap-send.

	   Command used to setup a tunnel to the IMAP server through which
	   commands will be piped instead of using a direct network connection
	   to the server. Required when is not set to use imap-send.
	   A URL identifying the server. Use a imap:// prefix for non-secure
	   connections and a imaps:// prefix for secure connections. Ignored
	   when imap.tunnel is set, but required to use imap-send otherwise.

	   The username to use when logging in to the server.

	   The password to use when logging in to the server.

	   An integer port number to connect to on the server. Defaults to 143
	   for imap:// hosts and 993 for imaps:// hosts. Ignored when
	   imap.tunnel is set.

	   A boolean to enable/disable verification of the server certificate
	   used by the SSL/TLS connection. Default is true. Ignored when
	   imap.tunnel is set.

	   A boolean to enable/disable the use of html encoding when sending a
	   patch. An html encoded patch will be bracketed with <pre> and have
	   a content type of text/html. Ironically, enabling this option
	   causes Thunderbird to send the patch as a plain/text, format=fixed
	   email. Default is false.

	   Specify authenticate method for authentication with IMAP server.
	   Current supported method is CRAM-MD5 only.

       Using tunnel mode:

	       folder = "INBOX.Drafts"
	       tunnel = "ssh -q -C /usr/bin/imapd ./Maildir 2> /dev/null"

       Using direct mode:

	       folder = "INBOX.Drafts"
	       host = imap://
	       user = bob
	       pass = p4ssw0rd

       Using direct mode with SSL:

	       folder = "INBOX.Drafts"
	       host = imaps://
	       user = bob
	       pass = p4ssw0rd
	       port = 123
	       sslverify = false

       To submit patches using GMail’s IMAP interface, first, edit your
       ~/.gitconfig to specify your account settings:

		   folder = "[Gmail]/Drafts"
		   host = imaps://
		   user =
		   port = 993
		   sslverify = false

       You might need to instead use: folder = "[Google Mail]/Drafts" if you
       get an error that the "Folder doesn’t exist".

       Once the commits are ready to be sent, run the following command:

	   $ git format-patch --cover-letter -M --stdout origin/master | git imap-send

       Just make sure to disable line wrapping in the email client (GMail’s
       web interface will wrap lines no matter what, so you need to use a real
       IMAP client).

       It is still your responsibility to make sure that the email message
       sent by your email program meets the standards of your project. Many
       projects do not like patches to be attached. Some mail agents will
       transform patches (e.g. wrap lines, send them as format=flowed) in ways
       that make them fail. You will get angry flames ridiculing you if you
       don’t check this.

       Thunderbird in particular is known to be problematic. Thunderbird users
