I setup a test dovecot-1.0-0.beta8.2.fc5 and left most of the settings
as the defaults. In Thunderbird 188.8.131.52 Windows, when I tried to create
a subfolder named "subfolder" under INBOX, it showed up as the same
level a INBOX and with the name "INBOX^subfolder".
I was able to manually create a subfolder using "mkdir
~/mail/test_manual_subfolder; touch ~/mail_test_subfolder/blah" and then
subscribing to it. That's too much work. :)
Now when I try to create a subfolder of a non-inbox folder, nothing
happens (not even an error).
The Dovecot system is Fedora Core 5 x86 and an NFS client for /home.
I'm considering switching from Trustix, UW-IMAP, and mbox. I'm also
considering changing INBOX to a Maildir (not /var/spool/mail/%u).
