The code is split into a several libraries and binaries:

 src/master      - imap-master binary (see docs/design.txt)
 src/login       - imap-login binary
 src/auth        - imap-auth binary
 src/imap        - imap binary

 src/lib         - Generic library functions
 src/lib-mail    - RFC-822 and MIME parsering code
 src/lib-imap    - IMAP-specific functions for parsing, sending, etc.
 src/lib-index   - Mailbox indexing library, slightly IMAP-specific
 src/lib-storage - Mail storage separated into interface and implementation.
                   imap binary uses only the interface so it's possible to
                   add support for any kind of mail storage (eg. SQL).
