Cyrus 2.1.6 IMAP
Hello all


We are migrating from cobalt mail server to SLOV4.1/Cyrus IMAP 2.1.6

Our main problem is that Cyrus doesnt allow us to create new folders on the same level as the inbox folder (Which when exploring /var/spool/imap/user/username" is the root folder aka. the username folder.
Our old mail system allow this and our roughly 70 users all have an IMAP structure more or less like this:


Our new mail server want this:


(As viewed by Outlook express/Outlook)
Is there any way of reconfiguring the cyrus/SLOX4.1 to allow folder creation on the same level as the inbox folder?

The issue is around Outlook/Outlook express which is not default setup for using inbox -> sent-mail structure and then add the sent mail to the local sent-mail folder which our users is rather dissatisfied by :scratch:

Any help will be highly appritiated.

I will be happy to supply extra infomation such as config files etc.

as the top indicates im rather "green" in the linux buissness :p

This was actually really simple...

The only thing we had to do was:

Edit /etc/imapd.conf

Add/change the line altnamespace


altnamespace: yes
(Standard is "no")
NB. pay attention to CAPS LoCK :D
