I am using the UW IMAP 4.6 RPM that ships with Red Hat 6.0.
Whenever I try to create a subfolder under Inbox, either with Netscape 4.61
or Outlook Express 4.72.2106.4 (the version that ships with IE 4.01), I get
told I can't do it. In Netscape's New Folder dialog box, the Inbox folder is
disabled. Outlook Express doesn't disable Inbox, but instead says this when
I try to create the folder:
You cannot create folders under "INBOX". This is a limitation
of your server.
A folder on this server can either contain folders or messages,
but not both.
I am using the standard Unix mailbox format (the mailbox is a flat text
file with the 'From ' header marking each new message). I checked, and indeed
the UW docs say that format does not allow subfolders. "mh", "mx" and "news"
do, but I don't know how to implement any of those file formats on my
server. (the docs say mx is buggy, so I don't want to use the mx driver,
but perhaps I could use mh or news).
What's the best file format to use if I want to allow my users to have
hierarchical subfolders, and how do I implement it?
