Sometimes at the moment MyRealBox has too many conncurant IMAP connections.
Thunderbird gives the following error message:

"Mail server imap.myrealbox.com is not a valid IMAP4 server."

Trying the same in Outlook Express gives the following, more useful error:

IMAP connection limit for this server reached

Configuration:
   Account: imap.myrealbox.com
   Server: imap.myrealbox.com
   Protocol: IMAP
   Port: 143
   Secure(SSL): 0
   Code: 800cccd9

"Code: 800cccd9" equates to error type IMAP_CONNECTION_REFUSED.

Forget my former comment, the following URL might be more resistant to change:
http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/ident?i=IMAP_SERVER_NOT_IMAP4

Something else: I was brosing the code using LXR to understand it a little bit
better. Maybe the capability_data method should include a warning for non
handled tokens?

Reporter, can you say more about your bug, which version of mozilla mail are you
using?

at one point, we'd fixed this to display the appropriate error message, but
perhaps when I changed IMAP to use blocking reads, I broke this.
