I think the issue is fairly clear.
I said in my posting:

It seems from Timo Sirainen's response
that kmail's maildir format is actually incompatible
with dovecot's IMAP format.
More precisely, kmail cannot access folders in IMAP format
(as eg ~/Maildir/.inbox/cur)
while IMAP cannot access folders in kmail format
(as eg ~/Maildir/inbox/cur)
If that is correct then I find it astonishing
that neither dovecot nor kmail point out this incompatibility.
Is there, incidentally, a simple script that will convert
kmail maildir format to something that dovecot likes?
I take it that if I converted kmail on my server to maildir++ format
then I could read it on the server as an IMAP account?
