Re: QUickly setting up a IMAP4rev1 capable IMAP service

This little hack which I will probably include with the partial message
retrieval feature is going to put tinymail on always non IMAP4rev1 mode.

Partly because I don't trust the Camel code that tries to support some
of the IMAP4rev1 code. Also because that way the partial message
retrieval feature will simply always work.

For some reason it seems that Evolution also turns-off the IMAP4rev1
code of the normal IMAP Camel provider. I need to investigate this a
little bit before making any statements about it, by the way.
