IMAP4 is where the error is coming from.
Could be a corrupt message in a mailbox, I have seen similar before. You would need to see whether an IMAP user is having problems getting their email.

Not easily.
There might be something in the IMAP logs, if you have that enabled.
Could be something in the Application logs.

I don't do much with IMAP myself.

Ensure that any AV on the server has the correct exclusions set as well.
