Quoting Todd Aiken <taiken@ubishops.ca>:

| 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.  

I can't replicate this behavior.  I know that Jan just committed some 
patches to silence some IMAP errors so this may have solved this issue.
