Well, that's untrue, the example lets the user select the mailbox to
use from the results of LIST *, and doesn't assume anything about
inbox. But, "INBOX" is the right default mailbox for *all* servers,
according to the IMAP RFC. Perhaps the issue here is that the server
doesn't show the "INBOX" special mailbox in its LIST response. I think
that's pretty common.
