For network tests like this where it is useful to test against external 
servers, could we just pick few known external servers that are unlikely 
to every go away?

imap.gmail.com:993 for instance?  (i don't know enough about imap to 
know if it supports what we need to test, I'll leave that up to you to 
determine :)

Picking another host or two from other big ISPs would also be wise in 
order to test multiple server implementations.

Once that is done, the tests that connect to external servers should be 
put in their own file marked as requiring the network resource.  Similar 
to how its done in Lib/test/test_urllib2net.py.
