Gerrit keeps coming to my aid ;-). Thank you! I will study your work, how 
fortunate I feel that you've been the one to do this. I asked in the right 
place, for once, it appears!

I understand you to mean that these files:

imap-2000a-cygwin-bin.tar.gz   4454129  1,571  i386 .gz 
imap-2000a-cygwin-src.tar.gz   1363877  793      i386 Source .gz 

neither do contain a "c-client.a" lib? I cannot get a connection to the 
server to download right now; maybe in a few minutes. Until I can download 
I cannot look inside the archives to see what's there. Assuming I 
understood you correctly, what is in the binary package, is only the 
compiled imap library archive (and headers, naturally), is this probably 
correct? That would be a shortcut? Will this allow my build of the client 
to be more simple? The exact relationship of "c-client" to the imap library 
isn't clear to me, even after reading the maintainer's documentation over 
two occasions (today and last month).

Maybe now it will all be simple and i won't need any more help with the UW 
IMAP C library part of the Perl work i want to do. I will holler if that 
isn't the case, tho :-).

Hmm, Google didn't find this sourceforge project for me. Surprising!

   Thank You,
