Question IMAP Message Store and Sub-Folder Support

Hello All,

I have noticed something unique in IMAP and subfolder configuration. Some IMAP servers will allow for Folders and Email messages in the same folder. The one I use at work for example. The native IMAP server in Fedora FC1 doesn’t support this. A folder is either a container of other Folders, or it is a container of Emails. See the following example.
IMAP Folders
--Inbox Folder
- - Email 1
- - Email 2
--Storage Folders (folder container)
- - Folder 1 (email container)
- - Email 3
- - Email 4
- - Folder 2 (email container)
- - Email 5
- - Email 6

I want is an IMAP server that will support the following email storage/sub folder setup. Folders that can store both Emails and Folders.
IMAP Folders
--Inbox Folder (email and folder container)
- - Email 1
- - Email 2
- - Folder 1 (email and folder container)
- - Email 3
- - Email 4
- - Folder 2 (email and folder container)
- - Email 5
- - Email 6

Unfortunately I cannot find out which IMAP server my work is using, so is anybody aware of a specific IMAP server that will support this storage scheme.
