I need the commmands in a log file from a Merak 8.3.5 IMAP4rev1 interpreted, the log contains 146 lines but many are repetitive

A client has had an employees e-mail accessed by a previous employee, who apparently had the password.  The hosting service has supplied a partial log.  I have no experience with the IMAP protocol and reading the RFC's has not given me the knowledge that I feel necessary to properly respond to my client.  Can someone please review the log and supply me with an interpretation of the commands?  I will be happy to pay a reasonable fee, plus the points, for this service.  The commands section of the log is listed below, with e-mail address replaced with "x", no other alterations.  Thanks -Brent Davis

Hi brentokc,

But what are the question ? What do you want to know ?

Hey Miguel-
I need to know what action is occuring as a result of each line of commands.  Such as >>> * LIST (\Noselect) "/" "" - from my reading this means the user is requesting a list of the files in the mailbox, like Inbox or Sent Items.  But I don't understand the arguments after LIST.  Sames way with >>> * STATUS "Sent Items" (UNSEEN 0), does this mean the user wants to see the flags on the Sent Items and what does (UNSEEN 0) mean.  I really don't understand what action is taking place as a result of each line in the log listing. Hope this makes things clearer.

Yes I have read the RFC's, but the arguments are still not clear to me.  My experience is in computer forensic analysis and network administration; I have no experience in progamming or IMAP.  This report was due last week and I just need someone to interpret the log now - learning the details of IMAP will have to wait for another day.
Thank you,
Brent Davis

Hi brentock,

I don't know what do you want to extract of the log ?!!!

The meaning of all the commands are in the rfc document ... i cannot explain that better than the document.
