It is just not allowed to have subfolders of INBOX. Another folder
works, thats why I used GMX as "prefix"

What I meant was:

On the 1blu-server there is an INBOX, and a Sent folder, and a Drafts.
Where do the mails, that were in these folders before the sync, end up
after the sync? They should still be in the folders on the 1blu-server,
but do the get synced to the gmx server? If yes, where to?
