Over to default owner. I don't know what would be causing this dialog.

jglick: yeah that's exactly the problem, a user won't know. if my admin didn't say 'IMAP' in his comment, or if he happened to say 'POP' or if he said 'Alert you have a virus, please reformat your computer' (a better example would be if my admin told me to empty my inbox because i was over my quota, -- i would have no idea which inbox to empty and as a naive user i might delete everything from the wrong one)... We need a ui spec for what to do when we get such a notice. I actually have some ideas but in the interim someone who owns the mailnews ui spec should consider the problem.
The wording is by server admin or such, but there should be something like "Notification from IMAP server, account email@example.com: ".
I believe the message comes from IMAP server response code ALERT (nsImapServerResponseParser.cpp line 1791).

Current thinking is to solve this problem w/ the activity manager.
Summary: Alert dialogs have no signature IMAP Server Notice → Alert dialogs have no signature IMAP Server Notice
could be wrong, but I'd rather doubt that (seamonkey) message would still have the same form.
