Mailbox folders encoding

I'm using courier imap on a Linux Box and my client is outlook Express 6.0
with win98 and Evolution with linux 2.4

I created with OE a folder named "Éléments envoyés" (Sent items).

On the Linux filesystem, in my Maildir directory, the name is
".&AMk-l&AOk-ments envoy&AOk-s".
It appears also like that in Evolution.
Messages contents displays properly with OE or Evolution
My win98 cp is 850, I'm using a French version and don't want to change it.

How could I do to use this folder with its normal name and working special
chars in Evolution ?

Courier IMAP user-ml answered that :
