Yes, it is becoming quite apparent to me that we really must have a "supported 
imap server" list.  I doubt that we can ever make all the servers happy.  
These problems 'threaten' to turn us into imap problem fixers rather than 
anti-spam software developers.  I must say that learning the nuances of every 
imap server's semantic is not particularly interesting to me... <wink>
