I'm not nearly that optimistic about most IMAP clients I've seen. They
seem perfectly willing to open up two channels and get a message list in
each one on the same mailbox. That may be what's happening with OE. It
opens up one connection, starts downloading messages, then when she
clicks on a particular message, it opens up another connection and tries
to download that message. USELOCKS should fix that.
It seems that your pessimism was well placed in this case :)
Setting IMAP_USELOCKS to 1 handily fixed the problem. Thanks.
