    Spoke too fast.  I can't move mailboxes across namespaces.  Is that 
a limitation?  For example, if I have a mailbox in 'mail/' that I want 
to move into 'mail-Archives/' I get an error saying:

    The current command did not succeed.  The mail server responded: 
Can't rename mailbox to another storage type.

    This is through Thunderbird.  I was able to do this with uw-imap.

W | It's not a bug - it's an undocumented feature.
