Thanks, Harri, this was quite useful info!

ok, I connected to my account, and invoked LIST command, which listed:
[skipped previous 2381 message]
2382 3648
2383 2858
LIST 2383
+OK 2383 2858
LIST 2384
-ERR  No such message
Connection closed by foreign host.

Note small "." at the end of the list.
When I listed just message 1
+OK 1 5035

there was no '.' at the end.
Now I recall that KMail (1.5, KDE 3.1) was exactly saying about 
   Wrong server response  "."

When I tried to list message ".", server immediately terminated connection.
I guess same was happening before when I was checking account with KMail.

Does someone know what this small dot (.) can mean and wether it's possible to 
delete it, in some way?
