For plain testing i recommend that you simply use the DNS hostname of the 
testing machine.

E.g. if the hostname of your testing machine is

You use as the domain.

Your test users will then get primary email addresses like 
firstname.lastname at

You then can test imap with either the plain "telnet" 
method or use the provided imtest.

Please note that we also ship a man page with imtest.

Last but not least I highly recommend to use

	eval `/kolab/etc/rc --eval all env`

in your bashrc
