While it is technically possible to connect WAC to a non-Oracle IMAP server for demo purposes, it is not recommended nor supported as a production solution.
Notably, some key features of WAC (such as the personal address book) rely on Oracle Email Server-specific APIs and are therefore disabled in this IMAP-only compatibility mode. Basic email operations (like sending, receiving, and reading messages) still work, but advanced email preferences (such as user-defined rules) don't.
IMAP-only compatibility mode was added during development for testing and demo purposes, and making it feature-complete was never a priority, so we can't recommend it for production use. If you're still interested, I'd be happy provide more information on how to set up WAC in IMAP-only compatibiltiy mode, so you can evaluate it for yourself.
Hope this helps,
Thank you for such a prompt response.
We have a tactical requirement to quickly replace our current webmail solution.
I hope in the future our technical strategy will look closely at implementing Oracle Mail instead of our Cyrus / Exim setup as a part of the further utilisation of OCS.
For now, the WAC demo site gives us enough to see the potential of the product.
