Hi, I also get the same problem of the same user getting a password 
mismatch error when may devices are tryibg to login to the same IMAP 
account at the same time. I didn't check how manylogins triggers this 
nasty behavior but noticed that this unwanted feature started right after 
I upgraded the the server from Debian Lenny to Squeeze. 
If anybody can point me to a hint about how I coukd 
change this behavior it woul be very much appreciated.
