If you are familiar with network protocols in general, you will probably be able to extract some clues from the protocol dump of the exchanges between Gnus and the server. Even if you are not familiar with network protocols, when you include the protocol dump in IMAP-related bug reports you are helping us with data critical to solving the problem. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to include the protocol dump when reporting IMAP bugs in Gnus.
Because the protocol dump, when enabled, generates lots of data, it is
disabled by default. You can enable it by setting

This instructs the
imap.el package to log any exchanges with
the server. The log is stored in the buffer `*imap-log*'. Look
