[imp] Invalid "To:" field problem

Had a user today complain that immediately after logging into IMP, he 
would get a "This page cannot be displayed" message from his web 
browser.  Traced it down to a SPAM mesage in his INBOX with the 
following invalid "To:" field:

To: "@cs.com" <@cs.com>

Our IMAP server is able to handle this message, as I was able to move 
it to my INBOX and view it via my IMAP connection in Pegasus Mail, 
but IMP doesn't like it.  If I add something to the beginning of the 
domain name before the @ sign, such as <test@cs.com>, IMP then 
accepts it.  

Using latest RELENG CVS versions of Horde and IMP, PHP 4.1.2, 
Apache 1.3.23, IMAP c-Client version 2001.
