Hi Jean,

When given the -v option, movemail does exactly that.  It prints

  number of messages in source mailbox: NNN

before trying to retrieve any mails.  If it doesn't, enable

will show you the entire (IMAP|POP) transaction on the protocol level.

What you describe sounds like progress meter.  As a diagnostic tool it
is of little (if any) value, but it can be implemented, of course.
