The University of Washington IMAPD doesn't allow clients to use folders for both mail and folders. When checking folders and mail if mozmail realizes that the server behaves like a uw-imapd it should do the following behavior: Pair folders (eg Inbox) and Directories (eg Inbox.sbd/). -- This behavior mimics mozmail behavior for local mail folders. [a Folder contains messages; a Directory contains containers, both Folders and Directories are containers.] If a user tries to move a container (eg "Drafts") into a mail folder (egInbox): * the paired directory (eg Inbox.sbd/) is created if it doesn't exist. * the container (Drafts and Drafts.sbd/) is moved into the paired directory (eg Inbox.sbd/). If a user tries to move a message into a folder (eg from Inbox to Personal.sbd/): * the paired folder (eg Personal) is created if it doesn't exist. * the message is moved into the paired folder (eg Personal). When a user creates a folder we can just create the mail folder, or we can create the pair. -- * I think I read that an imap agent can not assume that because we spoke w/ a uw-imapd server at 10.0.4.1 last time that the next time we talk to that ip ... will have a uw-imapd server. This can be addressed later. * The directory separator is server specified, for demonstration I used '/', in practice this would be auto detected.
