When a client enters the IDLE state, the IMAP server will send events to the client as they occur on the selected folder. These events may include notifications of new messages arriving, expunge notifications, flag changes, etc.
Due to the nature of the IDLE command, a folder must be selected before a client can enter into the IDLE state. This can be done by opening a folder using Open(FolderAccess, CancellationToken) or any of the other variants.
While the IDLE command is running, no other commands may be issued until the doneToken is cancelled.
|It is especially important to cancel the doneToken before cancelling the cancellationToken when using SSL or TLS due to the fact that SslStream cannot be polled.|
