I usually log at -d5, then I start by identifying the fd of the socket 
used for the IMAP connection (look for "mutt_socket_open() Connected to 
... on fd=...). One I have my fd number, say 4, I usually have a global 
look at what's going on by grep '4[<>]' ~/.neomuttdebug0.

What symptoms are you looking at?
