Hello, no if I am using for example roundcube for check mail, there is only Inbox. There is no Sent, or Trash or Drafts. If Im using SquirrelMail then the folders will be created, by SquirrelMail.
I have busted my head to figure it out whats the deal... I know that normaly Dovecot shouldnt create the folders, but who should? and how to set it... coz not everybody likes to use SquirrelMail so then if they use Roundcube, they wont have the stupid folder, only if they use first SquirrelMail
I even had the misfortune to use Outlook Express today, and that forced the creation of necessary folders.
I've never used roundcube - are you sure there's no way of getting it to create what's required? Are you sure it doesn't create them when they're needed? What happens if you delete a message in roundcube if the deleted folder doesn't exist?
Why don't you write a script to create them for new users?
