They are all printed when opening mailbox:
* OK [PERMANENTFLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Deleted \Seen \Draft foo bar
unknown-0 baz asdf dgidjgidjigd unknown-1 unknown-2 unknown-4 unknown-4X
lorro \*)] Flags

IMAP spec requires SEARCH command to search for the exact given input,
so all normal search indexing solutions won't work. For example if
message contains word "abcdefgh", the message must be found when
searching for "def" text.
The only usable full text search indexing for IMAP that I know of is
Cyrus's "squat indexes". I've been thinking of either just using their
code directly or to implement my own based on same ideas. Their
implementation is pretty annoying though since it requires re-reading
the whole mailbox when all you want to do is append one mail to the
index. Also it uses somewhat more space than really required. So I'd
like to implement my own, but it's not a very high priority currently.
