Speaking of which, I've tried creating empty imap folders and then creating
subfolders in them.  TB won't allow me to do this with Dovecot mbox accounts.
Shouldn't I be able to do this?  I've tried it with and without
tb-extra-mailbox-sep enabled.  I've read multiple places that tiered mbox imap
folders should be possible, as long as the main folder contains no messages,
only pointers to other mbox files, or "imap sub folders".

Is this a TB limitation, a dovecot limitation, or my knowledge limitation?

Thanks Timo.
