Question Mutt and IMAP $folder_format

Does anyone use Mutt with IMAP? (Not including offlineimap).

If so, do they have _any_ info about folders at all (modified date, new mail etc)?

I've tried every setting I can find but still Mutt seems to totally ignore $folder_format with IMAP.

set spoolfile=imaps://
set folder=imaps://
set imap_check_subscribed = yes
set imap_user = xxxxxxxxx
set imap_pass = xxxxxxx
set mail_check=10
set timeout=15
set imap_keepalive = 10
set header_cache="~/.mutt/cache/headers"
set message_cachedir="~/.mutt/cache/bodies"
set folder_format="%d %N %f"
