If you use different devices, e.g. a mobile phone or PDA and Outlook or
Thunderbird, you get in troubles, because both may have a very specific
view on the folders on IMAP, but the user wants to have all sent mails in
one folder, not to mention all deleted mail.
This goes on, if you want to do server-side stuff, e.g. clean the
trash-folder now and then etc. Even the trash folder is _not_ fixed by
standard. Elder versions of Mozilla and Outlook used localized names for
their folders, so even the native language effected the names.
The alias-feature alone will not overcome the problems, because the admin
(or user) still needs to configure the aliases for a specific set of mail
