Subfolders with Dovecot/Postfix
I have googled this a few times, screwed around with it a bit, but I am not really sure what I am doing.
I've been using a Dovecot/Postfix setup on my Dapper Drake linode for the last 18 months, without the ability to have subfolders.
I can have :
Folder Name Two
But I can't have:
- Folder Name/
– Subfolder Name/
- Folder Name Two/
-- Subfolder Name/
--- Sub Sub Folder Name/
This is quite a hassle, because I'd like to be able to organise my emails in a much more appropriate way and just folders doesn't quite cut it.
My dovecot configuration file is:
My postfix configuration file is:
I have tried to follow a few tutorials to configure it, and have googled quite a bit but I can't find anything that lets me know what/how I might be able to configure this.
Thanks for any help in advance!
Have you tried creating a subfolder under and empty parent folder?
Thanks for your response James, but I am unable to create a subfolder if I try to create one in an empty folder either.

That convention for folder names is not unique to Dovecot; it's a maildir thing. Something like that can't be unique to an MUA because the MTA has to speak it as well.
What? I've been using Courier-IMAP for the past 5-6 years, and just converted to Dovecot. Courier and Dovecot don't share this convention you call a "maildir thing".
