Apologies for not correctly threading this message, I'm replying to the

I'm curious to the discrepancy in handling as our existing production
IMP deployment doesn't display this behaviour - nor do any other mail
clients connected to it.

I'm not an IMAP expert myself, is this an example of what you were after?

S: * 35 FETCH (FLAGS (\Seen) UID 219080 RFC822.SIZE 57341 ENVELOPE ("7

Here is an example of an address that renders as I would expect:

S: * 47 FETCH (FLAGS (\Seen) UID 219339 RFC822.SIZE 18563 ENVELOPE
("Wed, 12 Jun 2013 11:10:36 +0000" "imp Digest, Vol 3368, Issue 1" ((NIL

"lists.horde.org")) NIL NIL NIL

S: Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
List-Post: <mailto:imp at lists.horde.org>

With apologies for the text wrapping.  This is from the debug_raw
output.  I can possibly get telemetry from the IMAP server itself.

What format should I expect?
