IMAP Server Responds With OK When Non-existant UID Used In STORE And FETCH Commands (Doc ID 2186930.1)

Last updated on JUNE 10, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 7.0.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Requesting clarification on the IMAP server behavior observed and the relevant RFCs.

We observe that when using the UID STORE or UID FETCH commands with UIDs that do not exist in the selected mailbox, the IMAP server still responds with 'OK Completed' versus a NO.

Example:

Can you please explain this behavior and/or point out the relevant section in the RFC?
