Evolution implements it, and has done for some time. Which version are
It doesn't mean it works though, since i've never seen a server run it,
but it definitely implements it.

Cyrus IMAP and other IMAP sever implementations use the IMAP ALERT
response to display warnings to the user, for example when their mailbox
quota is nearly used up.
Evolution ignores the ALERT status response, and thus ignores RFC 2060
which specifically states:
| The currently defined response codes are:
| ALERT The human-readable text contains a special alert
| that MUST be presented to the user in a fashion
| that calls the user's attention to the message.
I've tested this in Mozilla Thunderbird, and the ALERT is properly
acknowledged - on an account with a low quota the user is warned that
their quota is at x%.
