I don't see anything obviously wrong. Try talking IMAP protocol
directly, maybe your client is doing something wrong.


After login try something like:

a create foo.bar.baz
b select foo.bar.baz

If that succeeds, it's probably client issue. Recreating the account
might help. Or look at what the actual IMAP traffic is that it sends to
