In example when appending a message with more than one flag in a tuple with imaplib:

print flags
('\\Answered', '\\Seen')

connection.append('INBOX', flags, date, msg)

TypeError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-42-832414ffe4b5> in <module>()
----> 1 connection.append('INBOX', flags, date, msg[1][0][1])

/usr/lib/python2.7/ in append(self, mailbox, flags, date_time, message)
    326         if flags:
    327             if (flags[0],flags[-1]) != ('(',')'):
--> 328                 flags = '(%s)' % flags
    329         else:
    330             flags = None

TypeError: not all arguments converted during string formatting

When I have only one flag to append:

print flags
Out[70]: ('\\Answered',)

connection.append('INBOX', flags, date, msg)
Out[74]: ('OK', ['[APPENDUID 1 1012] APPEND completed'])

Any ideas?
