P.S. Just tried creating a subfolder with Outlook Express 6.00.2800.1807

IMAPs server, and it still works for both of them, so its not just in
Thunderbird that it works.

OK - I have it working - it seems the problem was slashes / in the existing Outlook directory names which imap does not allow.

here is my only problem now;

My incoming mail is still being directed to /var/mail in mbox format
- which is what I want, as most users are not imap.

but opening the imap inbox gives an error, presumably because it is
looking for maildir format and is finding mbox. Can dovecot be permitted to read incoming mail from as mbox format?

I have this in my dovecot.conf;

mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir/:INBOX=/var/mail/%u

I am wondering if something like;

mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir/:INBOX=mbox:/var/mail/%u

would work

it should, but i would check the dovecot lists as i am sure there are people doing this. you can certainly give that second one a try and see if it works.
