It appears that Maildir does use the a.b.c format as you say. I wasn't
aware of that.
More precisely Maildir does use standard subfolders but Maildir++ which
is a compatible extension created by the developer of Courrier-imap uses
the a.b.c format.
Yeah. "compatible extension"... famous last words. Isn't Courier an
IMAP server? Why not use IMAP?
<rant>This idea of dinking around under a server is just bad, period. A
server should *serve* access to its content and be the sole master of
that content; one of the reasons I love Cyrus IMAPd, it doesn't make
any pretense about being an IMAP/file server. It is an IMAP server -
full stop. Users, including me the admin, have no business thrashing
about in the mail store. There is no point - mail can be accessed via
IMAP and administration operations can be performed via tools.</rant>
Agreed (vehemently :-)
