Sounds fine.

Sounds fine.

Sounds bogus.  I would say simply that your IMAP server complains after
"about 11" errors with that message.  This would be imap server dependent.

You need to find out not what "triggers" the problem (filters being done)
but what "causes" the problem (why does your imap server think bad commands
are being sent?).
