Looks like this is working just fine:
a login wb foo
a OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS ID ENABLE SORT
SORT=DISPLAY THREAD=REFERENCES THREAD=REFS MULTIAPPEND UNSELECT IDLE
CHILDREN NAMESPACE UIDPLUS LIST-EXTENDED I18NLEVEL=1 CONDSTORE QRESYNC
ESEARCH ESORT SEARCHRES WITHIN CONTEXT=SEARCH] Logged in
a create foo.bar.baz
a OK Create completed.
b select foo.bar.baz
* FLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Deleted \Seen \Draft)
* OK [PERMANENTFLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Deleted \Seen \Draft \*)] Flags
* 0 EXISTS
* 0 RECENT
* OK [UIDVALIDITY 1266511425] UIDs valid
* OK [UIDNEXT 1] Predicted next UID
* OK [HIGHESTMODSEQ 1] Highest
b OK [READ-WRITE] Select completed.
as it resulted in the creation of foo.bar.baz like so:
-rw------- 1 wb wb 0 Feb 18 17:43 foo.bar.baz
I'll investigate further, thanks for your kind help sofar!
