The selections for $imap_server_type are inconsistent between the following subs in conf.pl:
------------------------------------------
"set_defaults" has:

print "Please select your IMAP server:\n";
print " bincimap = Binc IMAP server\n";
print " courier = Courier IMAP server\n";
print " cyrus = Cyrus IMAP server\n";
print " dovecot = Dovecot Secure IMAP server\n";
print " exchange = Microsoft Exchange IMAP server\n";
print " hmailserver = hMailServer\n";
print " macosx = Mac OS X Mailserver\n";
print " mercury32 = Mercury/32\n";
print " uw = University of Washington's IMAP server\n";
------------------------------------------
"command19" has:

print " cyrus = Cyrus IMAP server\n";
print " uw = University of Washington's IMAP server\n";
print " exchange = Microsoft Exchange IMAP server\n";
print " courier = Courier IMAP server\n";
print " macosx = Mac OS X Mailserver\n";
print " hmailserver = hMailServer\n";
print " other = Not one of the above servers\n";
------------------------------------------

I think having different server lists is very confusing for users ... if people enter the command19 area, it might seem that dovecot or mercury32 (for example) are not valid selections.

    Hi,

    This originated from the fact that the "command19" option is directly intended to enable some workarounds for known IMAP server types that make them work better. I agree that we can better add all those server types, and have them be no-ops for command19. Will see how to implement this.

    Thanks!

    The lists are now identical in the two places of conf.pl; this will be included in 1.4.10. We keep both options, since they are distinctly different, but they now both accept the same values. Thanks!
