My IMAP server is Cyrus, but configured to use the many-rooted rather than
single-rooted tree, i.e. INBOX is just another folder, so I have the same
issue as Farkas. However the solution is not to change IMAP servers (even
if I could), because that wouldn't fix things like Trash, Sent or Junk
being sorted lexically.

With Courier/Evo they aren't sorted lexically (=alphabetically?), but as
one tells Evo to do.

How do you tell Evo? I didn't realize this was configurable.

 IMHO the way to go is either 1) allow the user to
rearrange the folder order to taste,

How would the user do this? Is this Cyrus-specific?

This is a suggestion, not an existing feature. The user would drag
folders around on the folder pane so they looked like he wanted. This
would obviously have to be recorded as part of Evo's per-user state.
It has nothing to do with the specific IMAP (or POP) server.

 or 2) put certain "special" folders
at the top, preferably with distinguishable icons. See Mozilla, Thunderbird,
MacOS Mail, etc. etc.

Which are not Evo, though.

Naturally. But Evo could learn some things from them (and vice versa).

 The latter actually puts all the IN
--TonniBOXes in one place
(assuming you have several accounts), though I'm in two minds about that.

Allowing more than one account is an admin/organization policy decision
that is not sanctioned here, at Billy. At least, mail may only be sent
(smtp SASL AUTH) by a system-authorized (LDAP) logged-in UID and
obviously only be IMAP-read by the same UID.

You mean you can't read your company mail and your private ISP mail
from the same session? That's what I'm talking about, not having
multiple accounts on the same server (which is also useful in some
cases BTW).

Thanks for your input ;)
