Well, speaking from the client's perspective, it makes perfect sense to
have five idling connections to five mailboxes that are expected to
receive new mails rather than doing periodical STATUS polls on them. No
client should rely on such a behavior, though, and a lot of people would
probably say that it's insane to open 100 concurrent connections. I'd
agree with them :)
