It's more along the lines of SM will not use commands like SORT and
attempt to do things itself because your server does not implement it.
For example, I believe SurgeMail does not implement IMAP SORT so you'd
have to set it to 'false'. Dovecot does, and is much better at executing
SORT than having squirrel simulate it.
