We fail two tests in vanilla upstream ImapTest last I checked, and there are pull requests that I made for them years ago, but maybe they fell through the cracks. They were cases where Cyrus is technically correct in rejecting something that you could also argue is OK to accept.

Yeah, I still run it regularly. It has run clean since 2.4.something.

There are some things that ImapTest can test which we don't implement, but we're fully compliant on all the things we do implement. (at least, if you don't turn on deliberately standards-breaking stuff like autoexpuge or search_fuzzy_always).

Excellent. I don't remember having difficulty creating an account when I last did anything on that wiki.
