Re: [Evolution-hackers] sharing IMAP folders between users

Hash: SHA1

RFC 2086 allows for ACLs on IMAP folders.  We have used programs like websieve/smartsieve to set
ACLs to allow one user to share a folder with another user.

We just found a File->Open Other User's Folder in Evolution 1.2.4.  How is that feature supposed to
work?  Does it look in the Shared namespace?  Does it look in the user namespace?  What is it
looking for?
