RFC 3501, "INTERNET MESSAGE ACCESS PROTOCOL - VERSION 4rev1", March 2003

Note: This RFC has been obsoleted by RFC 9051

Section 9 says:

envelope        = "(" env-date SP env-subject SP env-from SP
                  env-sender SP env-reply-to SP env-to SP env-cc SP
                  env-bcc SP env-in-reply-to SP env-message-id ")"

It should say:

envelope        = "(" env-date SP env-subject SP env-from SP
                  env-sender SP env-reply-to SP env-to SP env-cc SP
                  env-bcc SP env-in-reply-to SP env-message-id SP 
                  env-references ")"

Notes:

Section 2.3.5 says:

A parsed representation of the [RFC-2822] header of the message.
Note that the IMAP Envelope structure is not the same as an
[SMTP] envelope.

Althought RFC-2822 is obsolete by RFC-5322 now, both says that the envelope should inlcude a "References:" header-field but the definition of the envelope in section 9 of RFC-3501 (see the part in "Original Text" above) doesn't include the "references" field.
