I created a ~/mail directory in my home directory, opened the imap port,

I then changed my receive options to use IMAP, specifying the namespace

to try to serve the evo local hierarchy to itself).

Moving the root of an evo hierarchy to the new mail directory fails, but
I kinda expect that as upper nodes in the tree have messages and
uw-imapd only supports message-containing mbox mailboxes at the leaves
of the tree. However, If I try to create a subfolder of a folder, the
operation silently fails, the original subfolder disappears from the
tree view (although I can see it from a shell prompt), and no subfolder
is created. Eg. I can create ~/mail/xxx, but I can't create

My local tree is quite deep and I do NOT want to flatten that out to
move it to IMAP.

So how do I create an IMAP folder hierarchy more than one deep?

this sounds like a new bug, there were some last minute changes to that

it will only work if the folder itself is empty.  might need to check
the CAMEL_VERBOSE_DEBUG=1 log to see what its sending the server.  some
servers have different ideas about what are errors too ...

also, i suggest you try courier or another imap server which allows
parent dirs to contain messages.

i'll look into it today perhaps, tho i tested this scenario.
