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.
