Quoting Paul van der Vlis via Info-cyrus <info-cyrus@lists.andrew.cmu.edu>:


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

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 "
2.3:    #define GOODCHARS "
Master: #define GOODCHARS "

Thanks for your answer!

I am wondering about the dot. So far I know I cannot use it in a mailbox
name, but it is in the list.

I suspect that your cyrus is configured to use the . as hierarchy seperator.
see "unixhierarchysep:" in imapd.conf manpage for details.

And what's "master" exactly? So far I see, I cannot use e.g. brackets in
a mailbox name.

Master is the name of the main development branch in git. A new branch for
cyrus imapd 3.0 will be forked from the master branch with the release of
the new version.
