1. What's the Maildir++ Plugin?

   The Maildir++ plugin for Sylpheed-Claws provides direct access
   to Maildir++ Mailboxes used by IMAP-Servers like Courier-IMAP,
   BincIMAP or Dovecot without having all the IMAP overhead of a
   connection to 'localhost'.
     _________________________________________________________

2. Requirements

     * Sylpheed-Claws 0.9.10claws48
     * Berkeley DB 4.1

   Newer versions can work too. If you use a precompiled package,
   you might have to install an additional development-package.
     _________________________________________________________

3. Install

   Run the configure script. You need the Sylpheed-Claws includes
   and pkg-config files that are usually installed, when you
   install Sylpheed-Claws.

   After the configure script you can build the plugin with make
   and install it with make install. It should install plugins in
   the location where the other plugins are usually
   $PREFIX/lib/sylpheed-claws. But you can load the plugin from
   any directory, also from the src/.libs directory in the source
   directory, if you don't want to install the plugin.
     _________________________________________________________

4. Usage

   The Maildir++ plugin consists of 2 parts. A common plugin
   maildir.so and a Gtk+ plugin maildir_gtk.so. You probably want
   to load both plugins also the common plugin alone is enough to
   use a Maildir++ folder that is already added in Sylpheed. But
   without the Gtk+ plugin you can not add new Maildir++ folders
   in Sylpheed and the PopUp-menu of the folder tree will only
   show you the common operations that all folders support and
   not the operations that affect the Maildir++ folder. So you
   probably want to load it too.

   After you loaded the plugins you can add an existing or create
   a new Maildir++ folder with the 'File/Add mailbox/Maildir++'
   entry in the main menu. After that the folder should appear in
   the folder tree and is useable just like any other folder.
     _________________________________________________________

5. ToDo

   Things that still have to be completed:

     * Automatic updating of folder contents, when changed by
       other program
