Works OK for me,...

What I saw is that in case the imap server goes down, the check breaks and returns a lot of garbage and exits with "1" (warning). The same happens in case the port is not up.

I made a small modification:

return 1

if use_ssl:
- M = imaplib.IMAP4_SSL(host=host)
+ try:
+ M = imaplib.IMAP4_SSL(host=host)
+ except Exception, e:
+ print "CRITICAL: IMAP connection not Successful: %s" % e
+ sys.exit(2)
else:
- M = imaplib.IMAP4(host)
+ try:
+ M = imaplib.IMAP4(host)
+ except Exception, e:
+ print "CRITICAL: IMAP connection not Successful: %s" % e
+ sys.exit(2)

try:
M.login(user, password)

Thanks for the check!
