Throughout the document, when it says:

   IMAP4rev1 includes operations for creating, deleting, and renaming
   mailboxes, checking for new messages, permanently removing messages,
   setting and clearing flags, RFC 2822 and RFC 2045 parsing, searching,
   and selective fetching of message attributes, texts, and portions
   thereof.

It should say:

   IMAP4rev1 includes operations for creating, deleting, and renaming
   mailboxes, checking for new messages, permanently removing messages,
   setting and clearing flags, RFC 5322 and RFC 2045 parsing, searching,
   and selective fetching of message attributes, texts, and portions
   thereof.

Notes:

RFC-3501 still refers to RFC-2822 which is obsoleted by RFC-5322. **One** example can be seen in the "Original text" section.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
Errata reports are for issues that were errors at the time of publication. RFC 5322 was published after RFC 3501, so RFC 2822 was the correct reference when RFC 3501 was published.
