Not without changing source code. But it is planned sometime in future.

So looks like IMAPdir and Maildir++ were more different than I thought.
You'd have to make some script to fix the folders names..

You'd have to move them from IMAPdir/INBOX/cur/ directory to
IMAPdir/cur/ directory.

With 1.0-tests it would be possible to add :INBOX=%h/IMAPdir/INBOX to
default_mail_env setting to do this, but that feature isn't in 0.99.x.

Just keep ssl_verbose=no as it is in defaults. Warnings such as that are
normal when it's enabled. It only means that Outlook disconnected
without sending a "SSL bye" command.
