Thanks for reporting this.  I suspect this is related to
v2.15.0-rc0~63^2 (imap-send: use curl by default when possible,
2017-09-14) --- e.g. perhaps our custom IMAP code was doing some
escaping on the username that libcurl does not do.

"man git imap-send" says this is a recommended configuration, so I
don't think it's a configuration error.

What platform are you on?  What version of libcurl are you using?

In libcurl::lib/easy.c I am also seeing

    if(mcode)
      return CURLE_URL_MALFORMAT; /* TODO: return a proper error! */

which looks suspicious.

Nicolas, am I on the right track?

Thanks,
Jonathan
