+NAME

+
+
+SYNOPSIS

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

+
+git-imap-send requires the following values in the repository
+configuration file (shown with examples):
+
+[imap]
+    Folder = "INBOX.Drafts"
+
+[imap]
+    Tunnel = "ssh -q user@server.com /usr/bin/imapd ./Maildir 2> /dev/null"
+
+[imap]
+    Host = imap.server.com
+    User = bob
+    Password = pwd
+    Port = 143
