If you aren't doing a complete login/logout sequence and possibly even
pulling down a message you aren't performing an accurate health check to
begin with. We don't use nagios but I'd be surprised if those scripts
don't optionally take a username and password.

Same here. We use LVS with surealived and LUA scripting to do a
complete login/logout cycle as part of the health check. Even the
ancient Alteon's had similar functionality (and supported common
protocols like pop and imap out of the box.)
