errors? mail_location = maildir:~/

> Your setup does not support slashes in mailbox
 names. Thanks for the response. I did some testing and the error
messages I get from Outlook vary and are not very helpful. If I try to
rename a folder from test to test/2 I get an error "Server bug: Internal
error occurred". I I try renaming a folder "test 1" to "test 1/ 2" I get
an error "NONEXISTENT: Mailbox doesn't exist : INBOX.test 1". Is there
any way I can support the '/' character with my configuration without
changing the format of all my mailboxes? 

Check out: [1]
but search the list archive for problems with it. I do not use it

Thanks, I will test it out and see if it solves my issue.
