Simple Mail Access Protocol, or SMAP, was invented to replace IMAP family of protocols but still is in its early stage and is supported by fewer mail servers such as Courier. Clients and servers using SMAP can “downgrade” gracefully to IMAP if SMAP is not supported.

This protocol has a number of advantages over IMAP family, such as ability to transmit binary attachments as they are, without their inflation during to using MIME encoding means such as Base64. It also allows sending emails without opening a separate SMTP connection; using Unicode folder names and so on.
