I'm getting this Error "Error in IMAP command FETCH: Invalid messageset" when trying to perform a IMAP connection to a Mailbox at my Webhoster. I've read about it propably being a Problem with Dovecot. I'wont be able to change naything about it because it's just a mailbox at my webhoster. Any Ideas?

What does your fetch() look like?

I was getting this when I used this on an email account with no emails in the inbox.

var f = imap.seq.fetch('*', {
  struct: true

I also got this error when using "1:3" in an inbox with only one email in it, but when I switched to an asterisk it worked. So it looks like you may need to have emails in the inbox that fully match your messageset.

Sorry for not coming back to it a bit sooner, I've also been trying this with "1:3", I acutally don't know how many mails have been there. But i'll have a look into it again.
