I played a bit with my password...
Sylpheed seems handle IMAP-Login failures not quite correct.
If I - existing sylpheed account - change my password on either end
(sylpheed or server), IMAP login silently fails (shows up in the log,
sylpheed reconnects, fails again) and presents me my locally saved
folders. No user notification whatsoever.
Editing the password in the account preferences works though, no
restart required.
