Hi there,
today is your lucky day. Since 24h, the code in the next branch contains:

            if typ != 'OK': #APPEND failed
                raise OfflineImapError("Saving msg in folder '%s', repository "
                    "'%s' failed. Server reponded; %s %s\nMessage content was:"
                    " %s" % (self, self.getrepository(), typ, dat, dbg_output),

BTW, this happened independently from your report, but was done to cater
exactly those situations as you experienced.

So the next stable release will output more sensible error reports.
