I did find the IMAP <-> Maildir worked a lot better than IMAP <-> IMAP,
so that is what I'm using now. However, I still need to use my local
IMAP server because Maildir support for Emacs continues to suck.
Perhaps I can fix that at some point, but not today.
Anyway, I need a way to get OfflineIMAP to create the folders in a
different place than it normally does for Maildir.
Right now, if I have two mail folders (INBOX and INBOX.spam), the
structure looks like this:
dovecot imap server can deal with this if I make four symlinks:
Maildir/cur -> Maildir/INBOX/cur
Maildir/new -> Maildir/INBOX/new
Maildir/tmp -> Maildir/INBOX/tmp
Maildir/.INBOX.spam -> Maildir/INBOX.spam
So, my question: is there anyway to make the Maildir support use the
“correctly” named directories?
I know about nametrans, but it doesn't appear to do the job.
War begins by calling for the annihilation of the Other,
but ends ultimately in self-annihilation.
