It's OK. It appears to not have impacted any existing data. Perhaps
just changes how the new folders are managed. I did see a file in my
Maildir called 'subscriptions' and when I opened it with a text
editor, it had the old invalid IMAP directory structure...should I
delete or rename this file on my mailbox and then restart the client
to force it to re-build this subscriptions file?
