The problem exists in all my mailboxes on this server. I don't know
what program they're using, but it behaves perfectly normally
otherwise. isync (aka mbsync) was still successfully sync'ing my
mailboxes a few minutes before, the webmail from also
perfectly works, and I get results when I connect manually on it.

Actually, it seems that it only gives strange READ-ONLY responses to
offlineimap when this one tries to push an update. I wonder if this
could be the symptom of an incompatible imap server, or if I still
have any chance to get it behave correctly. I can upload a full imap
trace on demand.
