Description Jarrod Sayers 2009-03-01 04:30:00 UTC
By default, mail/imap-uw will grant authenticated users access to their entire
home directory via the IMAP protocol.  In some situations, usually for security
reasons, this isn't a desired feature as additional directories and dot files
appear when users attempt to subscribe to additional mailboxes.

This optional patch, forces the IMAP root to be ~/mail for authenticated users
which is also the default path used for some MUA's such as mail/alpine and removes
the need for some users to configure a default prefix in either their GUI or console
based MUA.

Sorry for the late reply. You can set this in /etc/c-client.cf actually,
or in ~/.imaprc if you set allow-user-config in c-client.cf.

I think we should:

- change the location of c-client.cf and make this file more obvious.

- test whether it actually works. And then remove all options that can
be set runtime in the config file.

Not necessary with patch to set mailbox directory. I mentioned how to 
set it in the install message. Thanks for submitting.
