git imap-send [-v] [-q] [--[no-]curl]

       This command uploads a mailbox generated with git format-patch into an
       IMAP drafts folder. This allows patches to be sent as other email is
       when using mail clients that cannot read mailbox files directly. The
       command also works with any general mailbox in which emails have the
       fields "From", "Date", and "Subject" in that order.

       Typical usage is something like:

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

       -v, --verbose
           Be verbose.

       -q, --quiet
           Be quiet.

           Use libcurl to communicate with the IMAP server, unless tunneling
           into it. Ignored if Git was built without the
           USE_CURL_FOR_IMAP_SEND option set.

           Talk to the IMAP server using git's own IMAP routines instead of
           using libcurl. Ignored if Git was built with the NO_OPENSSL option

       To use the tool, imap.folder and either imap.tunnel or must
       be set to appropriate values.

           The folder to drop the mails into, which is typically the Drafts
           folder. For example: "INBOX.Drafts", "INBOX/Drafts" or
           "[Gmail]/Drafts". Required.

           Command used to setup a tunnel to the IMAP server through which
           commands will be piped instead of using a direct network connection
           to the server. Required when is not set.
           A URL identifying the server. Use a imap:// prefix for non-secure
           connections and a imaps:// prefix for secure connections. Ignored
           when imap.tunnel is set, but required otherwise.

           The username to use when logging in to the server.

           A boolean to enable/disable the use of html encoding when sending a
           patch. An html encoded patch will be bracketed with <pre> and have
           a content type of text/html. Ironically, enabling this option
           causes Thunderbird to send the patch as a plain/text, format=fixed
           email. Default is false.

           Specify authenticate method for authentication with IMAP server. If
           Git was built with the NO_CURL option, or if your curl version is
           older than 7.34.0, or if you're running git-imap-send with the
           --no-curl option, the only supported method is CRAM-MD5. If this is
           not set then git imap-send uses the basic IMAP plaintext LOGIN

       Using tunnel mode:

               folder = "INBOX.Drafts"
               tunnel = "ssh -q -C /usr/bin/imapd ./Maildir 2> /dev/null"

       Using direct mode:

               folder = "INBOX.Drafts"
               host = imap://
               user = bob
               pass = p4ssw0rd

       Using direct mode with SSL:

               folder = "INBOX.Drafts"
               host = imaps://
               user = bob
               pass = p4ssw0rd
               port = 123
               sslverify = false

       To submit patches using GMail's IMAP interface, first, edit your
       ~/.gitconfig to specify your account settings:

                   folder = "[Gmail]/Drafts"
                   host = imaps://
                   user =
                   port = 993
                   sslverify = false

       You might need to instead use: folder = "[Google Mail]/Drafts" if you
       get an error that the "Folder doesn't exist".
       projects do not like patches to be attached. Some mail agents will
       transform patches (e.g. wrap lines, send them as format=flowed) in ways
       that make them fail. You will get angry flames ridiculing you if you
       don't check this.

       Thunderbird in particular is known to be problematic. Thunderbird users
