How old is that? My main use of dual IMAP access was on my work mail account,
around 10 years ago.
Plus, extra nitpicky, the IMAP *protocol* still allowed that, it is/was
really an "implementation detail" behind the protocol that was violating that.
So arguably, they weren't fully compliant IMAP servers!
