I use IMAP with Office 365, and I am getting "Retrieval using the IMAP4 protocol" messages. What are these?

This is where your IMAP calendar has "subscribed" to your Calendar folder.  The Calendar folder is only intended to be read by Microsoft clients.  To stop seeing these messages, please adjust the IMAP Folder Subscription settings on your IMAP email client.
