shouldnt this be stored in the folder "Vorzoden Items"?
(does the space have to be escaped with a backslash?)

"-B"?  Batch option? there is a batch option?? o_O
anyway, how do you use it? any error messages?
(cant see.. the glass sphere is cloudy again..)

try "set debug_level=5" for more info.

that really depends on your usage..
which is hard to guess.

not sure.. but..
when imap_pass and imap_user are set - do they
need to be set for "imap://user:pass@host"?
wouldnt a url like "imap://host" suffice?
(and why isnt there a imap_host option?)
