Section 6.3.1 of the RFC3501 explains the possible data items the
server will return after a SELECT command is issues. You can find
RFC3501 here

Try using the RECENT method to examine the "extra" data items returned
by SELECT. Here's an example

>>> M.response('RECENT')
('RECENT', ['0'])

If all else faile, you may want to examine the imap library code to see
how it parses the SELECT response data.
