I can make folders on Gmail using a normal IMAP client (but yeah, it's not
always pretty), so I don't think that's the problem.
But it seems like they've broken _something_, because no tool I use works
consistently with their server, it seems (as far as upload...downloading
seems to work fine...).
Ugh, I wished Google used Dovecot too...
