Speaking of vfolders, any idea when vfolders of vfolders will be
working again?

My memory is hazy. Did this ever work?

Sure did!  I have a zillion of them here.  None of them work any more
mind you.  I still really don't understand how a feature (i.e. vfolders)
can be re-worked in a stable release with such obvious functionality
regressions.  Was there a hope that nobody was using vfolders of
vfolders and it would go unnoticed?

It's one of the reasons why I have yet to upgrade, despite it fixing
other bugs.  People keep telling me to "move to SVN Head" but, features
I _need_ are no longer part of it, or broken in it, from their (mostly)
working in 2.22.  That being MH Mail/maildir and virtual folders of
virtual folders.  Of course, I'm going to be in a quandry, when they
upgrade our Exchange server, and I _really_ hope MAPI will be working by
then, and they will have fixed the other brokenness, but ... what can
you do?  I'm not a developer, my priorities don't match theirs, and, by
moving to a database for the mail storage/information a lot of things
that were working, are now broken, and don't seem to be high enough on
the priority list to get fixed.
