That's hardly breaking the protocol. Even though it's pretty stupid.

Haha. Last time I checked Outlook Express had major problems with IMAP,
in terms of getting confused about folder subscriptions and having
problems with deleted messages. I use Thunderbird, which isn't perfect
either, but at least it doesn't have regular major security flaws.
IMAP is an over engineered protocol and as a result is difficult to
implement. Nobody seems to have written a decent client yet...
