Hi, all,

Please tell me about the patch and description below.

  example-config: Use a default uncommented "namespace inbox".

  There's a default inbox namespace added in 10-mail.conf. If the configuration doesn't explicitly specify a namespace (as was in v2.0 and older) a default namespace is created automatically.

Since v2.1, namespace is enabled by default in 10-mail.conf, and "inbox" is added as a sectionname of namespace.
I checked the dovecot's mail archive, but I didn't understand the reason for the change.

Please tell me about followings.

 - Why "inbox" was added as a sectionname?
 - Why was namespace changed to be enabled by default?

Best regards,
MIZUTA Takeshi
