IMAP fun again

Nothing about bots. My IMAP server got a small problem. Every time Outlook Express connects to it, OE does get the new mails, but always popup some warnings about "Inbox/Drafts" was not pulled etc.

So I did some trial/error, and found the CAPABILITY string has something to do with it.
I added IMAPrev4 to it and that solve the problem.

Or so I thought. Next day wife found she didn't receive emails, and I found all here emails are in the email folder, she just can't see them. Turned out if I set CAPABILITY to IMAPrev4, Outlook Express will do something extra on the requests, and break the server.

So everything back to normal. No more tries till tax season is off.
