Hmm. I guess I didn't then understand the question. It looked like a
mixed mbox/maildir tree. Mapping sounds like namespaces that Dovecot
/ -> $HOME/mbox
/INBOX -> /var/spool/<username>
/folder -> $HOME/mail/folder
/folder/foo -> $HOME/mail/folder/foo
/folder/bar -> $HOME/mail/folder/bar
/folder/foo/bar -> $HOME/mail/folder/foo/bar
There can't be a mailbox named "/" (or ""), so the first one couldn't
work? The others could probably be done using namespaces? Assuming
you're talking about only mboxes here, not maildirs.
