nametrans not working as expected

Hi Florian,

my (working) gmail nametranses contain a slash, not a dot between '[Gmail]' and
folder name part. Use '[Gmail]/Gesendet' and it should work fine. 

Also, as a side note, the folder names look strange if they contain unicode
characters. In polish gmail I need to use the following in my nametrans
'[Gmail]/Wys&AUI-ane', where the whole '&AUI-' part inside of the word is
a single polish letter. So probably you should take special care for german
umlauts if you continue to develop further nametrans functions.

Btw. Is there a special reason to access gmail through IMAP remote account type
and not the builtin Gmail type?

Best regards,
Tomasz
