Re: dovecot, imap, maildir and subfolders

I have Fedora Core 2 and dovecot- I've done nothing to configure it
but it seems to have found the Mail dir in my home directory ok and I can
connect using IMAP. But I can't create subfolders, at least in Mozilla

If I right click on inbox, there's a 'New Folder...', but if I create one then
right click on it, no more 'New Folder...'. So it seems folders can only go one
level deep.

I know I can do this with Cyrus IMAP and I thought I read somewhere you can do
it with dovecot. Is it even the IMAP server that's the limiting factor here? Or
the mail storage format?

While we're on the subject, can dovecot + Maildir handle both mail and
subfolders within a folder?


Eliot Stock.

I have no problem with the default configuration at all. Other than opening up the firewall to allow access from the other machines on the network, I didn't have to change a thing, worked right out of the box.

Yes, dovecot can have messages and subfolders within a folder.
