Of course you created a backup before you tried a new IMAP server on 
your important e-mails. :) I don't think your messages are gone. What 
about using a mail client like Thunderbird to look into your mailbox 
instead of telnet? If they're still gone (and also on the file system 
level), I'd suggest looking at the logfile of dovecot to figure out why.
