Hi, I am trying to create 5 parallel IMAP connections. My IMAP Server allows only 4 parallel connections per ipaddress. I verified it from command-line thru' telnet (i.e. telnet <ipaddress> 143 on 5 terminals). But when I do it thru' perl script using the module Net::IMAP::Simple, it return me a valid object even on the 5th try and if I try to login using this object, login fails, without setting any error string in $imap->errstr. So looks like the method "login" thinks that it is not a valid object, but I have no way of knowing it because new is returning a valid object. I believe the new method should not return a valid object in this particular case (i.e. on 5th try as limit is 4 parallel connections per ipaddress).

This is resolved in 1.1899_03 (available on github only). I know it's been a while, but if you still have any interested, I could use a tester for this. -- If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. 107 jumps, 43.5 minutes of freefall, 83.4 freefall miles.
