Quickly test an IMAP server with telnet

Use these commands with telnet to test an IMAP server:

telnet server 143
01 LOGIN <user> <pass>
02 LIST "" *
03 SELECT INBOX

You have to write the two digits before each command. You can see all the mailboxes with line 02.

Note : You can use netcat instead of telnet.
