I am syncing many mailboxes from one IMAP server to another. Now I get
sometimes errors on mailbox names. I found out that Cyrus does not
accept brackets in a mailbox name. Is there documentation about what
characters are accepted in mailbox names??

The allowed ASCII-Chars are defined in the macro GOODCHARS in imap/mboxname.c
non-ASCII-Chars are handled by RFC 3501 5.1.3.

This subject has been discussed a few years ago on this list, and GOODCHARS
has been changed between cyrus versions.

2.2: #define GOODCHARS " +,-.0123456789:=@ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz~" 2.3: #define GOODCHARS " #$'+,-.0123456789:=@ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz~" Master: #define GOODCHARS " #$'()*+,-.0123456789:=?@ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ[]^_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz~"
