User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.4) Gecko/20091017 SUSE/2.0.0-1.1.3 SeaMonkey/2.0
Build Identifier: 

Thunderbird was reporting very stange errors about communicating with the IMAP server, so I debugged it:
Thunderbird says:
2 STARTTLS
Server reponds
2 BAD Unrecognized command


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Probably Enable TLS when the server can't do it

Actual Results:  
You cannot access your mail, a very strange error message is reported
like:
The current command was not successful. The Mail Server said "Unrecognized comand"
.

Expected Results:  
A better error message, like "The STARTLS command was not successful..."
