% InterIMAP & PullIMAP
% [Guilhem Moulin](mailto:guilhem@fripost.org)
+InterIMAP synchronizes emails and their metadata between a remote IMAP
+server and local storage. By leveraging the [*Quick Mailbox
+Resynchronization*][RFC 7162] IMAP extension, it can offer [*much better
+performance*](benchmark.html) than tools such as [OfflineIMAP].
+PullIMAP retrieves messages from an IMAP mailbox and deliver them
+locally. It can use the the [*IDLE*][RFC 2177] IMAP extension to reduce
+both latency and network traffic.
+[RFC 2177]: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2177
+[RFC 7162]: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7162
+[OfflineIMAP]: https://www.offlineimap.org/
