When I'm doing IMAP authentication of one the public email servers and login is successful I believe, it replies like this:

* CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 ID XLIST UIDPLUS UNSELECT MOVE LIST-STATUS

There's no OK as you can see, neither a TAG value. However, according to this https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3501#section-6.2.3 they should be included always.

Why?

In case of unsuccesful login, it replies like this:

TAG_2 NO [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Authentication failed

which makes sense.
