So, the IMAP server for OfflineIMAP is connect.uwaterloo.ca.

I don't know how Exchange works but here is what I understand from the
- You locally change a mail of folder, with pdf attachment.
- OfflineIMAP tries to propagate this change back to the IMAP server
- connhub2.connect.uwaterloo.ca (18.104.22.168) (another server?) send
a request to mailchk-m05.uwaterloo.ca (22.214.171.124) about that
change but this internal exchange request fails.
And here is what I understand from all above:
- the exchange IMAP server looks more like a gateway to a more complex
- when trying to propagate the change internally, exchange fails (a
unexpected assumption/limitation somewhere?, we don't know);
- the IMAP gateway breaks the socket while it should only send a message
It's impossible for us to know what's happening but it really looks like
the Exchange is failing internally at some point, then breaking the
socket and providing a weird message. This message might make sense for
the Exchange admin, though.
Can't tell more, sorry.
