Yeah, it works!

Ok.

Oh, didn't know there were such an accound type. Got my documentation from a 
third party site (Arch Wiki) and from the config file. Changed to Gmail type 
now.
 
One more questions:

The local target maildir is mdir. Mail from the remote inbox is copied to 
mdir/.INBOX/cur/  (dot comes from my nametrans) while it really should go to 
mdir/cur/  How can I achieve that?
