Good morning,

Not speaking to the code changes itself, I have a couple of suggestions 
/ questions.

If you are familiar with GIT, could you please clone the git 
repository[1] and create a patch(-set) with git-format-patch?

In case you're not all too familiar with GIT, you could, for example:

$ git clone git://
$ cd cyrus-imapd
$ git checkout cyrus-imapd-2.3
$ git checkout -b dev/pop3_uidl-patch
(...make some changes...)
$ git commit /path/to/changed/files
(...make some more changes...)
$ git commit /path/to/changed/files
$ git format-patch origin/cyrus-imapd-2.3

And send the resulting ????-*.patch files as an attachment to an email, 
but better yet, a Bugzilla[2] ticket.

If you would be able to do that, that'd be great.

Given that Cyrus IMAP 2.3 is... well... rather old, it is maintained by 
only a small group of people having volunteered to do so. The main focus 
for the project is Cyrus IMAP 2.4, and future releases currently in 
development, so a question that pops up in my mind is - can this issue 
be reproduced in Cyrus IMAP 2.4.14, or even GIT master (future 2.5)?

Kind regards,
